Sumatra Lintong Tano Batak
Warning: Last items in stock!
This Sumatra is specifically grown in the northern part of the island around Lake Toba (a region called Lintong). It's a relationship coffee -- the importer personally works with the farmers who process it in small batches following specific instructions and then are highly rewarded for their harvest.
This is a traditional Indonesian in the sense it was processed using the wet-hulled method and is full bodied, low acid, rich flavor. But this is the fruitiest and most complex, sweetest Sumatran coffees I've ever come across. We roast it a little bit lighter than other Sumatra coffees in order to showcase some of the undertones. There's some grapefruit and cherry, raspberry, cherry tobacco. To be honest, I sampled it because I was curious, but had no interest in buying a Sumatra that was this expensive. But when we sampled it, I understood why it cost so much.
This is a Sumatra bean that is showing off.
