SUMATRA LINTONG is processed in the "wet hulled" method that is unique to Indonesia. In order to dry coffee in the high humidity environment of the southern Pacific, the outer "parchment" layer on the coffee seed is removed before the coffee is fully dried. This allows the coffee to dry quicker in a humid, rainy climate.
The coffee bean is more exposed while drying, so sometimes these coffees can be stereotoyped as being "dirty" or "musty", but we take great care to source coffees that are well dried and sorted, with rich earthy flavors & unique sweetness.
