1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Just finished roasting my last half pounder of the 20# Sumatra Mandheling 
"Classic" 03 Lot4365 received and greens vac sealed 4/26/03, what an 
excellent Sumatra it's been! FWIW 12:05 BB profile FC 445f about 5 to 10f 
before 2nd roast. I usually alternate between Sumatra and all other Indos 
about weekly roasts. Sumatra stash now down to 4# Gayo Mountain 7/12/04, 
4.5# Lintong 4/6/05 & 5# Gayo Mountain 5/9/05. Many other Indonesians in 
stash but that's it for Sumatras! (I know, who cares;-)
Today also roasted halves of Wood's Estate Kona 03/04 City+ (down to 2.5# 
and still my #1 Kona just edging Moki's), Aussie Skybury FC and next off to 
Light FC roast Guatemalan Antigua Finca Filadelfia...

Never tried "Classic." How does it compare to Iskandar
3pick, my current favorite Sumatra. Not that it
matters any more, since it is gone :-).

Can't say. I haven't tried one of the "clean" tasting triple pick Sumatras 
since '02 IRRC.  At least, that was my impression of the triple pick 
Sumatras back then, too clean a taste. I prefer a more classic Sumatra taste 
with a bit of earthy funk (not dirty). The Mandheling Lot 4365 '03 Tom 
dubbed "Classic" I bought 20# strictly trusting the review and was not 
disappointed. Gayoland also usually hits the mark just right, the 04 
certainly does, haven't roasted any of the 05 yet. I found the 05 Lintong a 
bit on the clean tasting side but with enough Sumatra "earth" to be a 
worthwhile Sumatra companion to the Gayoland. There are other Indonesian 
coffees I prefer for a more refined cleaner Indonesian cup profile like Bali 
Shinzan, Papua New Guinea and Timor (currently out of Timor, should get some 
more too 'cuz it's 'bout my favorite to roast to FC++ not quite Vienna and 
mix with 1/4 chickory for 'Nawlins style press pot). And always have 
Sulawesi in stash too, seems somewhere inbetween.

IMNSHO, day and night.  The triple pick is almost too clean for my tastes 
in a Sumatran.  The Classic is NOT that, but woody, dusty, earthy, full and=
 
broody.
