The district of Atu Lintang is located at the northernmost point of Sumatra, and is in close proximity to many areas in which we have sourced coffee from previously. What makes this coffee different to our other offerings from Sumatra is that these lots have been processed in a central processing plant, rather than processed by the individual farmers that make up the cooperative. This leads to a much more uniform quality and taste in this coffee.

Notes from the team:
Indonesia will always have a soft spot in our hearts. Our journey started by meeting coffee farmers in Sumatra, before we'd even laid hands on a roaster for the first time!⠀
Many Sumatran coffees (including this one) go through a process called Giling Basah, which gives them a real depth of character. In this case, there are prominent spicy notes, with a vibrant hit of blackcurrant that we pick up on from time to time. Opening a tub of Atu Lintang in the roastery is like opening a bottle of Ribena!
