Sumatra Lintong Volkopi Peaberry (sold out)
Deep and syrupy with notes of dark chocolate, fresh herbs, earth and blackberry. Sweet, structured, unique and complex.
Your typical coffee fruit (cherry) has two beans in it, but sometimes the cherries form with a single bean. This is called peaberry coffee and is considered a higher quality and displays more complexity and sweetness in the cup. This peaberry comes from the growing region of Lintong in Northern Sumatra near the shores of Lake Toba.
A hybrid coffee method used in parts of Indonesia called, wet-Hulled process, is one of the factors that gives this peaberry its distinct flavor profile. It results in a dark, opal-green coffee with little silverskin clinging to it, and a particular low-acid, earthy, heavy body. In this method, the farmer picks ripe coffee cherry, pulps off the skin and either dries it immediately for one day, or lets it sit overnight in a bucket (with or without water) before drying the next day.
