Sumatra Lintong Bagak Tabo
Sumatra Lintong Bagak Tabo coffee often exhibits tones of sweet dark chocolate and herbal notes. Very smooth rich flavor.
Lintong "Bagak Tabo", is produced by 621 farmers in the highlands of Sumatra, near the famous Lake Toba. Preparation is very selective from harvesting and pulping the wet parchment in Lintong to additional quality processing and Green House drying at PT Menacom, NKG partner & exporter of the coffee.
Farmers handpick the red cherries which are then soaked in water and sent through a hand pulper. After pulping, the parchment is immediately washed to remove the muscilage and kept in plastic bags for the night. The next morning, the wet parchment is sun-dried inside a greenhouse or glasshouse patio to reduce the moisture. After hulling, they sun dry the green beans up to 16% moisture and then send it through the gravity table sievers.
Once the coffee arrives in Medan, it is further processed into an export quality Grade 1 TP. PT Menacom has been an exclusive buying partner of this farmer group since 1988 and offer support through teaching techniques to obtain better quality and to help them increase their production quantity.
