Sumatra Pollung Lintong

 

Lintong coffee is grown in the District of Lintong Nihuta, south-west of Lake Toba. Lake Toba is one of the deepest lakes in the world at over 500 meters down and formed by ancient volcanic activity.

Lintong Pollung has mostly typical characteristics of Sumatran coffee from this region; full body, spicy and rich aftertaste with low acidity in the form of sweet orange. What sets our Pollung apart from other Lintongs are the herbal notes and milk-chocolate flavor. The body of this coffee is extra syrupy.

Our recommendation is to resist the urge to over-roast these beans. Most good quality Sumatrans roast darker than they appear to be. 30 seconds or so into 2nd crack is more than enough, unless one really prefers a darker roast. That said, if Dark is what you like, make it dark! Darker will turn the mild milk-chocolate into cocoa-choco.

Cupping Notes: Intense dry and wet aroma. Pipe tobacco. milk chocolate, syrupy body. Sweet lingering orange-lemon aftertaste that does not present itself until the cup begins to cool.

Note: these are unroasted green coffee beans
