This Sumatra Aceh Lintong is sourced near the shores of Lake Toba (formed from a super volcano). On average, producers cultivate coffee on 2.5 acres of land using their own micro-mills to de-pulp and dry coffee. Lintong coffees tend to be distinct in that they are spicier and have a little more brightness.
However, this coffee takes things a step further with wet hulling in the usual Sumatra style, but not until the coffee reaches 30% moisture content. (Usually 45 - 50%) This produces a cleaner cup and accentuates the spicy, bright notes, while downplaying the earthiness typical to Aceh Mandheling coffees.
