Pure Bean Roasters was kind enough to send us a number of bags of their specialty whole bean coffees for review.
Co-owners Mark Royalty and Nick Reid created a boutique air roast coffee company called Pure Bean Roasters in Rapid City, South Dakota. They started their wholesale coffee-roasting business in Royalty’s garage. Pure Bean Roasters produces air-roasted specialty coffees using a commercial glass-roasting chamber to air-roast their beans. This process reduces the coffee’s acidity level and creates a smoother tasting coffee than traditional roasting methods.
Pure Bean Roasters custom roast their coffee to order in micro-lots for maximum freshness, offering a choice of whole bean or ground coffee. Pure Bean Roasters offers whole bean or ground coffee and FREE shipping with purchases of 3 bags or more.
Pure Bean Roasters was founded in faith. Their mission is to honor God while operating with integrity to produce the highest quality in goods and services, to produce exceptional artisan coffees and to support organizations and ministries through activities and donations from the company. It always makes me admire coffee companies when they choose to help charities and donate to others.
When opening the package of the Pure Bean Roasters Sumatra Mandheling it smells of a darker roast coffee aroma with an intriguing, earthy quality. The coffee is a medium-dark roast and the beans are oily and aromatic. We ground the whole beans using our Infinity Conical Burr Grinder. The Pure Bean Roasters Sumatra Mandheling was brewed in our Capresso SG120 12-Cup Stainless Steel Coffee Maker, and also our French Press, and it was tasted with and without half and half.
Sumatra Mandheling is a newer coffee that will soon be offered by Pure Bean Roasters. When tasting the Sumatra Mandheling you immediately get a deep, earthy flavor, a woodsy quality with a lingering slight bitterness. What was surprising to me was the floral notes I tasted, it reminded me of the bergamont in Earl Grey Tea. This coffee has a full, round taste, no fruitiness here. The Sumatra Mandheling is a bold coffee that will be appreciated by coffee drinkers who like a full-flavored coffee.
