Coffee Story

Meticulously separated, this remarkable peaberry comes to us from the same region as our Sumatra Mutu Batak. Peaberries are an anomaly—they occur at a rate of about 5% in all coffee crops, when just one little oval bean develops within the coffee cherry, rather than the normal two. The resulting peaberries tend to be more concentrated in flavor; in this case heightening the herbal aromatics of lemongrass and sage, and intensifying the inherent sweetness to the level of luscious caramel.


Sumatra Batak Peaberry exemplifies many of the ideal characteristics of an Indonesian coffee. The Batak farmers utilize a 'wet hulling' process to separate the beans from the coffee cherries, which imparts some distinct berry flavors from the lush rain forest surrounding Lake Toba, the defining feature of this region of Sumatra. Wet hulling enables the farmers to dry the coffee quickly, which is essential given the perpetual state of precipitation in the region.


Long our favorite hunting ground for Sumatra, Lintong coffees express a becoming combination of herbal aromas and syrupy flavors. With the intensifying effect of peaberry, this Batak microlot takes it to an intoxicating level. With a swirl of tobacco and tropical spice aromas, you can smell it across the room. With the concentration of brûléed sugars and natural brightness, the flavors jump from the cup. With the scarcity of this rare and exceptional find, drink now.
