Sumatra Lintong RF Volkopi - Grade 1

Sumatra is one of those immediately recognizable coffee names. Any reputable shop will carry Sumatra, and any blend of Sumatran coffee will have brightness, acidity, and most likely be burnt to a crisp. Sumatran coffees are known with roasters for being one of the few reliable varietals that can handle French roast and still have flavor left.

This coffee is so much better than that! As you have discovered by now, home roasting opens up whole new horizons of flavor, and here you will find vistas so far beyond the average cup of Sumatran, you'll feel like you had been blind before.

First off, this is a rich coffee with brightness, but also body and complexity. The depths of flavor are hard to identify, and vary by roast. At a ten seconds into the second crack, the body is still strong and the flavors are dominated by a warm earthiness, cocoa, and a note of clay that adds a tang to the cup that takes it past balanced into a wild place of flavor. This flavor is highly prized in Lintong coffees, properly only coffees grown in a relatively small region southwest of Lake Toba in the district of Lintongnihuta. Enjoy these intense flavors from a truly unique coffee, and leave behind your notions of one note Sumatra blends.
