Featured Coffee of the Week - Lintong

Our featured coffee for this week is Lintong! Originating from the Lintong district which is just south-west of Lake Toba, the coffee is grown on a high plateau which provides the ideal altitude for cultivating Arabica coffee beans.

It features a clean mouthfeel with a bittersweet and syrupy balanced taste, garnished with herbal nuances and a spicy finish. This makes it perfect for the serious coffee drinker who wishes to experience a different kind of coffee flavour. 

 The parchment of the coffee beans are hulled before the beans are fully dried, this process is called 'Giling Basah'

The special taste profile of Lintong is partly attributed to its unique wet-hulling processing method, also known as ‘Giling Basah’ in Indonesia.

This is a traditional Sumatran process, where the parchment of the beans is hulled at between 30-50% moisture (instead of the usual 12%). Exposing the green beans to the air before they are fully dried results in the earthy flavours that can only be found in Sumatra coffee.
