This is a very unique Sumatra coffee, really unlike any we have tasted before. It really cups much more like an East African coffee from Kenya, with its fruit acidity, than what is normally thought of as an Indonesian cup profile.
The Mutu Batak comes from selected producers surrounding the town of Lintongnihuta in the Provinci Sumatera Utara (Northern Sumatra Province). This specific area is located on the southern shores of Lake Toba, which is the largest volcanic lake in the world, has exceptional soil, terrain and conditions for growing coffee.
We taste: sweet raisin, stone fruit, and black currant.
