Description

Sumatra Lintong Coffee showcases the best of Indonesia. It is a full-bodied, dark-roasted, high-grade, arabica bean Coffee, one with earthy and spicy characteristics. All Sumatra Lintong Coffees have notably distinctive flavours, while our Sumatra Lintong, in particular, transcends its already-good name.

Like all of our Coffees, Sumatra Lintong is roasted using the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transfer to roast the beans. Unlike our other Coffees, however, Sumatra Lintong Coffee brings to light the very essence of the renowned island on which it is grown. It is a must for every Coffee Connoisseur already familiar with Indonesia’s Coffee Industry, as well as anyone who is, quite simply, a fan of good Coffee.

But what exactly makes Coffee from Indonesia so special? And why choose a Sumatran Coffee over, say, a Javan Coffee or a Balinese Coffee? Coffee was first discovered in Ethiopia some 1,000 years ago but did not arrive in Indonesia until either the late 17th or early 18th Century.

It was first introduced to the Asian country by Dutch colonists, whereby it was quick to flourish across the landscape. However, in the 1880’s, a disease called Coffee rust decimated Coffee plantations and farms, particularly on the island of Java which, in turn, forced many farmers out of the lowlands and onto the higher plateaus. It was a move that had a long-term positive effect on Indonesia's Coffee Industry as the higher altitude improved the quality of the beans.

Today, Indonesia produces some of the most-loved Coffees in the world. Coffee-growing regions in Indonesia are spread out across the country’s thousands of islands, the most famous being Java, Sulawesi, Flores, East Timor, Bali and, of course, Sumatra. Coffee plantations in Indonesia cover an estimated 1.24 million hectares of the country, most of which produce high-quality Arabica Coffee Beans with some producing Robusta beans.

So, now we know why Coffee Connoisseurs around the world choose Indonesian Coffees. Nevertheless, one question still begs: why Sumatra? Sumatran Coffees offer characteristically heavy flavours and aromas well-suited to those who enjoy boldness in their brew. Sumatra Lintong Coffee is grown in the north-central region of the island near Lake Toba.

The region itself is called Lintong - hence the name of this Coffee. The unique soil and climatic conditions of the area contribute significantly to the quality of this beverage. Find out for yourself with our Sumatra Lintong Coffee today. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
