It's often said that what is wrong with the world today is that we no longer drink from the skull of our enemies.
We at Iron Bean Coffee Co. have solved the world's problems. “Drink from the Skull of Your Enemy”
Many of the islands of Indonesia were formed by volcanoes. Therefore, they are mountainous and have rich soil that is ideal for growing coffee. It is no wonder that some of the world’s most famous coffees are grown on the islands of the Malay Archipelago of Indonesia: Sumatra, Sulawesi, and Java. Approximately 15% of all the coffee grown in Indonesia is Arabica. Sumatra is the second largest island of the Republic of Indonesia. Sumatra Mandheling coffee is grown on the lofty volcanic slopes of Mount Leuser near the port of Padang in the Balak region of west-central Sumatra.
Coffee trees were originally brought to Indonesia in the early 19th century by the Dutch, who sought to break the world-wide Arabic monopoly on the cultivation of coffee. Within a few years, Indonesian coffee dominated the world’s coffee market. Yet by the end of the century disease completely destroyed the crop. Coffee trees were successfully replanted and quickly gained a large share of the world market until the plantations were ravaged again during World WarII.
“Mandailing”, spelled here correctly, is technically an ethnic group in Indonesia, not a region, as is Batak.
The unique method used in its production results in a very full body with a concentrated flavor, garnished with herbal nuances and a spicy finish. Giling Basah, the name of the traditional Sumatran process, involves hulling the parchment off of the bean at roughly 50% moisture content; for comparison, most other processes hull coffee at around 10-12% moisture. This unique Sumatran process results in a trademark flavor profile (low acidity and a richness that lingers on the back of the palate) and gives the green beans a signature dark color. Notes of chocolate are evident in the finish.
We buy Grade 1 Sumatras as Double-Picked (DP) or Triple-Picked (TP), referring to the number of times the coffee is hand-picked for defects. This extra quality control results in a very consistent cup including only cherries at optimum ripeness.

There are many coffee producing regions in the Andean mountains of Colombia, all with slightly unique attributes and flavor tendencies. The coffee we've been getting from the Tolima region lately has been unique and exceptional.
This Colombia Tolima is unusually sweet! It's got notes of cherry, milk chocolate, orange and a slight hint of rose petal. That might lead you to believe that it's got a light and crisp body, but it actually has a medium body and a long finish, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy the smooth balance of flavors and aromas.
Ride or Die was originally a biker term meaning if you couldn't ride you'd rather die. It has now changed to mean anyone (wife, boyfriend, best friend), that you will "ride" ANY problems out with them or "die" trying. The "ride" doesn't always have to be a negative either. Obviously if you're this close to someone you want them to enjoy the "ride" (life and all it has to offer with them as well.
A gentle and distinctive version of the classic American breakfast cup, superb when drip-brewed and enjoyed black. Roasted and turned with Cocoa Nibs!! A Brazilian Yellow Bourbon Coffee bean with superb smoothness and flavor. You'll find Caramel, Hazelnut & Sweet Cream....
A gently acidic coffee, with a melodic sweetness and delicate complexity: milk chocolate, perhaps a hint of fresh-cut cedar and a shimmer of jasmine running from aroma through cup to the clean, refreshing finish.
