Batak Nauli

Lintong refers to a specific area to the south of Sumatra’s Lake Toba. The people here are from the Batak tribe, like many from around the lake. Only in Lintong you’ll find more cars in driveways and more satellite dishes on roofs. It’s because specialty coffee came here first. ¬

Lintong was the first area to be developed for specialty coffee outside the Dutch plantations in Aceh. Sparkling lemon lime acidity and complex sugars are the hallmark of a good Lintong and this coffee matches that, adding complexity with notes of green apple and some slightly wild fennel .

This lot was collected by a Tokeh named Kotor from a group of 50 women, mostly widows. The word ‘Nauli’ means ‘pretty’ in the local language, and ‘Batak’ refers to the tribe. Batak Nauli is a new project and one that we are happy to be a part of from year one.

Green apple acidity add extra complexity this women's group coffee

It leaves a trail of itself, stretching out far to the south of us. We knew what we we’re getting into. But like many things in Sumatra, the scale was humbling. We’re arriving in Sumatra’s lar...
It's going to be a white Christmas in central Sumatra this year. Not snow, though; ash. This is because Mt. Sinabung is erupting. This volcano has been shooting ash miles into the air for weeks now - the government has evacuated an estimated 17,000 people from around the mountain's base and most people are just waiting for the other shoe to drop. This directly impacts the coffee farming community with whom we work in Simalungun (Sumatra, Indonesia), and we are putting the wo...
