Fair Trade Organic Sumatra Mandheling
Yes, please. This coffee is a regular in the Neon cafe. We roast this hearty Sumatra to a Full City level. You'll catch a soft aroma with subtle notes of dried fruit, nuts, and a velvet-smooth and chocolate mouth feel. The complex flavor is hearty but delicate. You'll experience a pleasant, dry finish that lingers just long enough for you to grab the next sip.
