THE STORY:

Lintong is southwest of Lake Toba, high on a plateau with a notable diversity of tree ferns. This volcanic region is known for fertile soils, myriad microclimates created by small valleys, and much sought-after Blue Batak coffee. Many years ago, a massive super-volcano erupted in Lintong. The eruption left much incredibly fertile soil in its wake. In fact, the soil is so rich that the Bataknese say you can put a chair in the ground and it will become a table.

Coffee beans from this region are processed by removing the skin layer of parchment when it is still half dry, before drying it in the sun.  This gives the coffee its blue color and characteristic flavor. The coffee is then stored for at least 2 years to get the woody cup profile. 

 

OTHER:

Tasting notes: this is a classic aged Sumatra with an oaky, pipe-tobacco taste. It can be enjoyed with many brew methods; we suggest starting with aeropress or espresso.
