Lintong Sumatra Arabica Green Coffee Beans

$7,700.00 /MT

Lintong accurately describes only coffees grown in a relatively small region just southwest of Lake Toba in the district of Lintong Nihuta. Small plots of coffee are scattered over a high, undulating plateau of fern-covered clay. The green coffee beans are grown without shade, but also without chemicals of any kind, and almost entirely by smallholders. Each of the small farmers produces green coffee beans on less than a hectare of land. They may bring some of their green coffee beans to sell to the coffee suppliers at the weekly market in Lintong. Notes of chocolate are evident in the finish. High-quality Lintong differentiates itself from other Sumatran coffees in its clean mouthfeel and moderate acidity.

In contrast with Mandailing, Lintong has a medium body but retains notes of dark chocolate and fresh earth. The coffee’s taste recalls sage, tobacco, cedar, and herbs, but these earthy flavors are balanced by chocolate tones. It is a fairly robust cup with a medium level of acidity and a syrupy mouthfeel.

As a reliable Arabica coffee supplier, we offer various cleaning methods that suit your business. We provide natural (dry-hulled), semi-washed (wet-hulled), and full-washed (wet-processed) to clean raw coffee beans. Each cleaning method brings different results that impact coffee acidity, flavor notes, and even coffee body. For this reason, it is crucial to know the difference between the 3 cleaning methods before you choose what is a perfect fit for your business.

Dry-Hulled Coffee Cleaning Method

Dry-Hulled (Natural) Lintong Sumatra Green Coffee Beans

In a dry-hulled, natural method, the coffee cherries are sun-dried for 20 to 30 days until the moisture content inside the coffee cherries significantly drops to 12%. The sun-drying process allows Lintong Sumatra raw coffee beans to absorb the flavor notes of the fruit. That’s why our Lintong Sumatra raw coffee beans reveal a complex blend of fruity and earthy flavor notes. Once the coffee cherries are parched evenly, the coffee farmers separated the coffee cherries from the dried skin at a dry mill.

Semi-Washed (Wet-Hulled) Lintong Sumatra Green Coffee Beans

For the semi-washed green coffee beans, the skin and pulps of the coffee cherries are removed (de-pulping process). Then, it’s sun-dried without a washing process. Allows the thick-sweet liquid in the outer layer of coffee cherries to stick with the green coffee. It takes about 10 to 15 days until the moisture content reaches 10%, slightly drier than dry-hulled green coffee. Once the coffee cherries are dried, the coffee farmers remove the mucilage and outer layer by utilizing a coffee milling machine.

Semi-washed coffee beans possess an intense sweetness characteristic. The flavor note of semi-washed Lintong Sumatra raw coffee beans is sweeter compared to coffee beans processed in other methods, and cleaner when compared to dry-hulled Lintong Sumatra green coffee. Other than that, semi-washed green coffee beans reveal more body and low acidity content, compared to other coffee-processing methods.

Semi-washed Coffee Cleaning Method

Full-Washed (Wet Processed) Lintong Sumatra Green Coffee Beans

The fully-washed coffee process starts with soaking the coffee cherries in a tank filled with water for 24 to 36 hours while checking the quality of the coffee cherries. The good quality coffee cherries will sink to the bottom, while the poor ones will float to the surface. 

The coffee farmers will de-pulping the coffee cherries with a coffee pulping machine. Then, the coffee cherries are cleaned once more to thoroughly remove the mucilage and left to soak for 24 to 36 hours. After that, these wet raw coffee beans are sun-dried until the moisture content reaches 10% to 12%. 

Full-washed Lintong Sumatra green coffee beans are prized for its clean-bright flavor profile, with a subtle hint of fruity tasting note.
