Our single origin Sumatra Lintong coffee is a hidden gem from the volcanic highlands surrounding the beautiful Lake Toba in North Sumatra, Indonesia. This exquisite coffee is more than just a morning ritual; it's a journey to one of the world's most unique coffee-producing regions.

Sumatra coffee beans are harvested primarily in the Lintong area, which is situated in the northwest part of Sumatra. This region is named after the district it lies in, Lintongnihuta. Its location is uniquely Southwest of Lake Toba, acclaimed as one of the deepest inland lakes globally. The geography is especially conducive to the cultivation of Arabica coffee.

The district’s location on a high plateau presents the ideal altitude for growing specialty coffee varieties. The elevated climate and rich soil conditions combine to create a prime environment for Arabica coffee plants to thrive, contributing to the distinct flavor profile Sumatra coffee is renowned for.

The Lintong coffee beans are nurtured at elevations ranging from 800 to 1,500 meters, where the rich, volcanic soil and tropical climate create the perfect conditions for Arabica coffee trees to thrive. These beans are handpicked with utmost care, ensuring only the highest quality makes it into your cup.

What sets the Sumatra Lintong coffee apart is its traditional processing method. After harvesting, the beans undergo a semi-washed (or wet-hulled) process, a technique unique to Indonesia. This involves removing the outer skin of the cherry immediately after picking, then allowing the beans to partially dry with the mucilage still on. Once the beans reach the ideal moisture content, the remaining layers are removed. This meticulous process contributes to the coffee's distinctive body and flavour profile.

Dive into a cup of Lintong, and you'll discover a complex and full-bodied experience. The flavour notes are a captivating blend of deep, earthy undertones complemented by a subtle, natural sweetness. Hints of spicy cedar, chocolate, and ripe tropical fruit weave together to create a rich, smooth finish that lingers pleasantly on the palate.

Available in 200g, 450g or 1kg resealable bags.

Very nice flavour

I wanted to try this coffee because it was new. It’s quite full bodied and dark. It has a nice flavour but just a little too dark for me My favourite still remains the Ipanema

Customer service

I was running out of coffee and also going away before my subscription was due. They pulled out all the stops to deliver my coffee, what a super service.
The Lintong coffee is also very good once I had dialed in my grinder.

Lots of crema

I’ve purchased coffee beans from many roasters but never had a coffee so far so crema rich. I’m not one for being able to distinguish individual flavour notes but I do love the taste of this bean.

Smooth coffee tasting of dark chocolate

I make filter coffee with these beans. This coffee is smooth, complex tasting , and definitely there are notes of dark chocolate. It is a really superior product.

A really nice coffee at anytime of the day
My usual Monsooned Malabar was out of stock
Tried a 1kg bag of these beans instead and I’m glad I did !!
Will definitely be having some more of these in the future
A nice chocolate taste comes through but not over powering
Found it good for all tastes as have bean to coffee machine, my wife has never drunk so many lattes as she has with these beans
Thanks Dave
