MAND­HELING

hellobali - - ISLAND LIFE -

Luwak – civet – cof­fee is def­i­nitely one of a kind. This type of cof­fee com­prises cof­fee cher­ries that have been eaten, partly di­gested, and defe­cated by Asian palm civets. Although not ev­ery­one’s cup of tea (or dare I say, cof­fee?), Luwak cof­fee is still one of In­done­sia’s caf­feine boasts. An­other pride of In­done­sia is Mand­heling, which is named af­ter an eth­nic and tra­di­tional cul­tural group in Su­ma­tra. The Mand­heling ara­bica has been known around the world since 1878. Be­ing grown at an alti­tude of 1,200 feet above sea level, Mand­heling beans are known for their earthy, choco­laty flavour, and their flo­ral, rather sweet fin­ish.
