Farm Description:

Lintong coffees are from Sumatra, the island that is politically and geographically part of Indonesia. Lintong Nihota is the town that has become synonymous with the entire southern part of Lake Toba area. Lake Toba defines the landscape of the area, the largest volcanic crater lake in the world, and the result of the largest volcanic event on earth in the last 25 million years! It is huge, and the coffees from the north and eastern shores are quite different from the Lintong coffees. This Lintong coffee is from Sigumpar Village, in the northern Sumatran sub-district of Humbang Hasunduntan. It comes from a family milling operation in town operated by man named Alexander, who is the younger brother of the coffee collector we used to buy this coffee from (well, coffee from Sigumpar Village at least). Pak Alex has his own small farm nearby that he processes and sells, but also buys wet parchment from neighbors in town as well as in six of the neighboring villages. The coffee is grown between 1400 and 1500 meters above sea level and is mostly Jember, Onan Ganjang, Sigarar Utang and Lasuna.
