Sumatra Lintong Grade 1 Triple Picked

SKU SUMLINT

Starting at $7.50 / lb
As low as $6.50 / lb

Sumatran coffees present one of the most striking and recognizable profiles in the coffee world: earthy, full, and packed with cedar and spice. Giling Basah, the name of the traditional Sumatran process, involves hulling the parchment off of the bean at roughly 50% moisture content; for comparison, most other processes hull coffee at around 10-12% moisture. This unique process results in a trademark flavor profile (low acidity and a richness that lingers on the back of the palate) and gives the green beans a signature dark color. Notes of chocolate are evident in the finish. The Grade 1 Triple-Picked is, as one might guess, hand-picked three times for defects. This results in a very consistent cup including only cherries at optimum ripeness.

High-quality Lintongs differentiate themselves from other Sumatran coffees in their clean mouthfeel and slightly brighter acidity. In contrast with Mandehlings, Lintongs have a medium body but retain notes of dark chocolate and fresh earth. We suggest you give them a try if you’ve been a fan of Mandehlings but are looking for a twist.

Cup Characteristics: clean, consistent, some nice rustic notes, bright acidity, earthy, floral, soft tobacco, spice.
