Indonesian Sidikalang 2009-2010


Bean name Indonesian Sidikalang 2009-2010
Country Indonesia


Much of the Arabica coffee produced in Sumatra has traditionally been defined as Lintong and Mandheling. These old-fashioned heirloom descriptions, however, tell little of the provenance and even less of the quality.

Our Sidikalang coffee is produced by many small growers around the town of Sidikalang at around 1200m above sea level and located to the west of Lake Toba in North Sumatra Province. This is the region which produces much of the coffee that is marketed as 'Lintong' (named after a small town to the south of the lake).

In the cup expect, bananas but almost fermented and bruised banana, along with an oakyness. Then onto a cider apple boozyness that turns into a sherry after taste. Also very predominant is the asian fruit durian
