We visited the Lintong region in Jan (2015) which just about represents coffee grown in a minor region southwest of Lake Toba in the districts of Kecamatan and/or Lintongnihuta. Coffee is farmed on small acre plots by individual farmers, with each farmer removing the coffee cherry skin and pulp by a variety of homemade methods.

The beans are then allowed to ferment overnight in anything that comes to hand, normally in woven plastic bags. After fermentation (normally overnight) the fruit pulp or mucilage is washed off the beans by hand and the coffee dried in the farmer's front yard.

Each farmer then transports the the beans to a central warehouse where the coffee is further dried or tthe bean are collected by a middle man called a collector and he will deliver to the central warehouse for further drying and processing. Finally, the coffee is trucked down to the port city of Medan, where it is dried a third and last time before bagging.

All our coffee is sold as whole beans, which we recommend for optimum flavour and freshness. If you don’t own a grinder you can buy one here, or you can specify that you’d like us to grind it for you in your Basket.
