About this Coffee
This Sumatra Lintong was produced primarily by four farmers. They all started planting arabica varietals in the 1970's and 1980's. It is semi-washed (also called wet milling because it involves water in the process).
Lintong is southwest of Lake Toba, high on a plateau with a notable diversity of fern trees. This volcanic region is known for fertile soils, myriad microclimates created by small valleys and much sought-after coffee.
