Coffee Care Sumatra Mandheling Bold Bean Ground Coffee
The Team at Coffee Care take coffee seriously. All they talk about is coffee – they love it. So if you love it too, you’re in the right place. They’ve been delivering award-winning coffees and services to the trade for 40 years – that’s possible because they are a second-generation family business.
They sell, and have always sold, speciality and high-grade coffees, teas and hot chocolates sourced ethically from around the world. Paying fair prices is all part of that process but it doesn’t stop there. How their coffee is roasted, packed and delivered matters and their day to day activities are carried out with a conscience. Their small business is undergoing major changes as the provision of more environmentally sustainable options become available. This has always been, and will always be, an ongoing commitment for them.
As well as achieving a respectable 11 Great Taste Awards to date and a coveted SCAE Gold Cup Award, over the years they have built up a range of accolades including “Best Yorkshire Beverage” for their Three Peaks Blend, Best “Business to Business Wholesaler”, and selected as “Editors’ Choice” by the Fine Food Digest on multiple occasions. Whilst they don’t think they need awards to demonstrate the quality of their products they do understand that they provide independent validation for anyone that doesn’t know them as well.
Indulge in this dark, sultry coffee and enjoy the rich earthy notes, spiced dark chocolate overtones and sweet caramel, syrupy finish. Sumptuous.
Coffee Care’s Sumatra is grown in the Aceh region of Sumatra. Coffee was introduced to Sumatra by the Dutch East Indian Trading Company in the 17th Century from Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Coffee in Sumatra has had a colourful history, being nearly destroyed completely by war, disease and religion. Around 92% of coffee in Sumatra today is grown by small independent farmers who then sell their small crops to cooperatives that process and sell the coffee.
To experience this coffee at its absolute best, we recommend using one heaped dessertspoon per cup. You can experiment with this by playing with the dosage of water and coffee to suit your taste for each different blend or origin and brewing method. You can brew with filter, chemex and V60. For cafetiere add fresh water just off the boil and allow the flavour to develop for 3-4 minutes.
