Bean picture
Note: The coffee is Grade 1 - but in Sumatra this refers to the cup quality. In the bean appearance, the coffee is very irregular, and it also has significantly more "defects" than our coffees from other growing regions. And due to the typical Sumatran processing (Giling Basah), its colour is very unusual. Nevertheless, the taste of the coffee is excellent and an absolute recommendation.

Preparation

Depending on the degree of roasting, different preparation methods are recommended. Darker roasted Sumatra Lintong is ideal for Café Crème or French Press. With a lighter roast, we recommend it for filter coffee or the Aeropress. 

The coffee also goes very well in an espresso blend. 

Origin

The coffee comes from the Lintong Nihuta region in Sumatra, Indonesia. Lintong Nihuta is located on the southwestern tip of Lake Toba, high on a plateau, and has extremely fertile soil thanks to a supervolcano eruption about 70,000 years ago. 

The coffee comes from the Naibaho cooperative and grows at an altitude of 1'400 - 1'700 metres above sea level. To ensure high coffee quality, the coffee farmers harvest three times and only pick the ripest cherries. The coffee cherries are then processed using the Giling Basah method, which is widely used in Indonesia: the seeds are de-pulped and only briefly dried until the moisture content is around 50% (instead of the usual 10-12%). Already then, the seeds are freed from the parchment skin and dried further - and this is exactly the difference to most other methods, where the parchment skin is removed only shortly before the ready-dried coffee is shipped. Thanks to Giling Basah, the beans have a striking bluish jade colour and the coffee has a distinctive flavour profile with low acidity and more body.

Naibaho dries the coffee in large covered terraces, the coffee is raked regularly and is protected from rainfall, resulting in a surprisingly clear cup profile. 

Roasting recommendation for Indonesien Sumatra Lintong

This coffee can be roasted both light and dark. In a darker roast (e.g. Full City +), the heavy notes of spices, dark chocolate and sometimes almost earthy notes typical of Sumatra come to the fore. With a lighter roast (e.g. City), the sweet notes of passion fruit and citrus notes of grapefruit come to the fore. To emphasise the sweetness, you should extend the drying phase a little and also give it a little more time after the first crack. 

You can find roasting profiles for this bean in the knowledge section: for Gene Café, for Hottop Manual, for Hottop with Artisan and for Aillio Bullet R1 V2.

Packaging

The green coffee is delivered in a transparent and resealable 1kg or 5kg Ecotact fresh bag or in a 15kg bag-in-box.
