Topic: which sumatra to buy, classic or organic? (9 msgs / 189 lines)
1) From: Bill
As the subject line indicates, I need about a fiver of sumatra, I'm about
out again...  so whaddya think, should i go with a bag of sumatra classic
mandheling or sumatra organic mandheling?
I really liked the classic earlier this year.  But I think I'm leaning to
the organic, just to try the difference.
any recommendations, suggestions, advice? thanks in advance.

Both is my home roasting answer. (Which is why at one point had 63 different
greens in stash including 4 or 5 Sumatras:-)

Bill,
Seems like I recall an earlier post from you....
Just unpacked my latest shipment with a few pounds of coffee... It
overloaded my coolerdor by about 5 pounds... which means that I can't buy
any new coffees until I roast a pound or two... or ten or so.
So, I'm thinking... new coolerdor? (Makes sense to me....)

Go with the known: a Fiver of the Classic, and at least two of the organic.
Tom don't sell no junk, so even if you got a Fiver of the organic, it's
unlikely you will think it's unpalatable.

5) From: Eddie Dove
Bill,
Both produce an exquisite elixir and obviously Tom's cupping notes are
right on.  With both roasted to a Full City+ (just a few snaps into
2nd crack), I found the Sumatra Organic Mandheling to be a bit more
fruited and a bit more intense; the Sumatra Classic Mandheling had a
bit more chocolate.  My preference between the two would be the
Sumatra Organic Mandheling, but if you have enough room, order both!
Hope this helps ...
Respectfully,
Eddie

6) From: Bill
Brian,  you nailed it on the head why I need to limit myself to 5 pounds!
 No, not a new coolerdor, but I am gonna do some roasting this week!!!  some
serious roasting, and then I'll give a bunch to friends.  Lucky dogs!
This will be my last order til about September.  I thought that the one I
just did would be the last order, but I really want to have 10 lbs of that
Yirga Cheffe...  and as I look in the coolerdor, I see that I could really
use 5 lbs of Sumatra...  otherwise I would go with MiKe's advice and buy 5
of each.
Eddie, I appreciate your thoughts on the two coffees.  I am thinking that I
will go with the Organic, just to see what that tastes like in relation to
the Classic...
Still interested if anyone else has any other thoughts on these two!!!

Bill,
Bill said "Still interested if anyone else has any other thoughts on these

If this is your last order until September, I would go with one pound of
each Sumatra and then get a pound of the Bird Processed Brazil, a pound of
the new Misty Valley, and one of the 4 star Columbian coffees.  I would then
wait for 5 pounds of new offerings to come along between now and September.
Why limit yourself to such narrow coffee experiences?  Some of the best
coffee will be coming in the next two months and it will be gone by
September.

8) From: Bill
Les, it's to round out the order.  I'm ordering to pick up the new Yirg, and
I've noticed that I'm running low on Sumatran, too...  I'm not gonna be
around much for about 6 weeks in the middle of the summer, so I'm not too
concerned about missing out on some fantastic coffees.  Plus, unlike many
(and you, I believe), I don't love the americans.  I really love the
ethiopians and sumatrans.  I have some kenyans and rwandans to see how they
taste and if I love them...
Keep the advice coming!

In case anyone is curious which way I went... I was gonna buy the Organic
Mandheling.  When I went to put it in my cart tonight, I found that SM has
sold out of it!!  Curses! They had it monday!  I wanted to roast a bit more
to create more room...
So now I'm gonna impulse buy.  I'm not gonna buy sumatra at all.  I will buy
Sulawesi.  I haven't had any of this crop, and I want to see how it
tastes....
wanna bet that it's good?
