The judges at Coffee review rated the year’s most exciting coffees & from the thousands, they cupped over the course of the past 12 months. They ranked those 30 coffees and espressos based on quality (represented by overall rating); value (reflected by most affordable price per pound); and other factors that include distinctiveness of style, uniqueness of origin, tree variety, processing method, certification, and general rarity.
This Sumatra Lintong made the list taking #23 out 30 being one of the best coffees they have reviewed this year & we couldn't be more proud. Try some today to taste some of the best coffee released this year.
The Lintong comes from a region near South Lake Toba in Sumatra. At 1,400 to 1,550 masl, this region has the highest coffee-growing altitudes in North Sumatra. We purchase this coffee from Olam Specialty Coffee who works with six collectors that buy coffee directly from small farmers and in weekly village markets. The collectors wet hull the coffee at 28-32% moisture and then dry it in greenhouses. Once around 11-12% moisture, they run the coffee over densimetric tables before sending it to Medan for hand sorting.
