Sumatra Lintong, Lake Toba region

The island of Sumatra is known for producing a number of "jungle" type coffees, often characterized by exceptionally full mouthfeel. Our Sumatran coffee is sourced for us by our friend Sudibyo of Sriwijaya Coffee, who has been our source for Sumatran coffee for over 8 years.

This Arabica has a fantastic aroma and smooth, low-acid taste that nonetheless has the desirable "edge" that sharpens the palate. When ground fine, it makes a really exceptional espresso, all intense flavor with no trade-offs. (Although, as is generally the case with Arabica, it produces only a thin layer of crema.)

The island of Sumatra has a unique geography, featuring high plateaus with steep drop-offs to the ocean. Sumatra Lintong gains much of its unique character from its processing methods, which involve a partial wet-process followed by a three stage drying cycle which "cures" the unroasted bean.

Lintong needs to be roasted with care, since the cured bean roasts to a slightly lighter color than other beans and requires a delicate touch; the result is extraordinary.

8 oz roasted coffee, medium roast.
