About the coffee 

The largest of Indonesia’s huge archipalego island, is Sumatra. Indonesia is the second largest ‘Robusta’ producer in the world, after Vietnam, but also produces a small but important amount of Arabica, concentrated in Sumatra and Java.

Sumatra coffees are famous for their peculiar flavour profile, low acidity, thick body and rustic flavours that can often be described as earthy. 

About the growers

Lintong Tornauli is a premium Arabica coffee produced and exported by CV Utama Sejahtera Agro (Utamagro) Coffee in Medan, in northern Sumatra.

Red cherry and parchment are sourced exclusively from a group of approximately 500 farmers, who farm 500 hectares of Arabica. The land is in Aek Nauli, a coffee-producing area in the Lintong Nihuta district.

The cherries are carefully sorted and processed at a mill in Tor Nauli. The mill also has a drying facility that can accommodate 20 tons of beans for sun drying.

In Medan, Utamagro has a huller, de-stoner, gravity table, colour sorter and unit grader.

This coffee was processed in the wet-hulled style that is traditional in Indonesia.

This coffee is grown without shade but without any chemicals of any kind, almost entirely by small holders.  Sumatra has a main crop and a fly crop.
