The Sumatra Lintong exhibits some classic elements of this region with a thick body, mellow acidity, and deep sweetness, but this lot also displays noticeable clarity and balance. Deeper notes of molasses, dark chocolate, and pipe tobacco along with a heavy body and mellow acidity became present as we approached a more developed roast profile. This coffee works very well as a heavy bodied batch brew or a deep espresso experience.
About this coffee
This coffee comes from the Lintong region of the North Sumatra Province and is comprised of various smallholder farmers from the towns of Siborongborong, Dolok Sanggul and Lintong Nihuta. These towns sit around the southern edge of Lake Toba, the largest volcanic lake in the world. Like most coffee in Sumatra, this coffee is grown by smallholder farmers whose farms are located between 1,500 and 1,800 meters above sea level. Nine out of ten coffee farmers in Sumatra grow coffee on less than one hectare of land. The area is lush with a high diversity of plant life and the soil is volcanic. These factors, combined with the elevation of the high plateau, help to make Lintong ideal for growing a wide variety of high-end specialty coffees.
