A huge-bodied coffee grown on the island of Sumatra in a region called Lintong Nihuta, situated to the south west of Lake Toba, the largest volcanic lake in the world. The Arabica beans are grown 1000-1800m above sea level on a high plateau.
Most coffee beans are hulled (to extract the bean from the fruit) at 10-12% moisture content, but farmers in this region use a unique method called Giling Basah, whereby the beans are hulled at a 50% moisture content. Giling Basah imparts a superb body, and a complex smoky, woody and spicy aroma; you can almost taste the volcanic ash the coffee was grown on. There is very little acidity but this is made up for by the brew's huge body. 100% Arabica beans
