Origin Notes

Lintong is southwest of Lake Toba, high on a plateau with a notable diversity of tree ferns. This richly volcanic region is known for fertile soils, myriad microclimates created by small valleys, and much sought-after Blue Batak coffee. Around 70,000 years ago, a massive supervolcano erupted in Lintong. The eruption was the biggest on earth in the last 25 million years, and left many lakes and incredibly fertile soil in its wake. In fact, the soil is so rich that the Bataknese say you can put a chair in the ground, and it will become a table. The majority of farms are small in size, and self-sufficiency is a key value here. The Bataknese sometimes cultivate more than 10 different crops at their small estates, making these backyard farms an interesting sight. The Genuine Origin Project (Sumatra Lintong Blue Batak)

Brewing Recommendations

Brewing Recommendations: Pour-Over, Drip, espressps: We have had fantastic results with this coffee using drip/filter brew methods as well as espresso. The Mutu Batak is different from the Sumatran coffees roasted by large-chains which tend to serve their Sumatra coffees darker with earthier and smokier notes. The Mutu Batak is surprisingly bright, sweet, smooth, and complex. Enjoy this coffee in V60, Kalita pour over, or Chemex.  This coffee is also great in standard machine drip and is a makes a singular espresso that you wont soon forget.
