Sumatra Suku Batak
The Sumatra Lintong Suku Batak comes from selected producers surrounding the town of Lintongnihuta in the Provinsi 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. The soil around the southern part of the lake is volcanic which leads to exceptional terrain for growing coffee. The town of Lintong Nihuta sits on a plateau that ranges from 1000 meters with a few farms around 1300 meters.
The producers run small two to four hectare plantations with each hectare consists of approximately 1,000 coffee trees. The producer grows, harvests, and depulps the coffee on the farm.
Coffees from Sumatra are often wet hulled. In this process, ripe cherries are harvested each day, then are de-pulped and allowed to ferment in buckets for 20-28 hours. After fermentation it is washed and then hulled while the coffee is still wet. Once hulled it is placed out on the patios to dry to 17% moisture. It will then be transported to our partner’s facility for screening, density separation and hand sorting for final export preparation.
