Indonesia is one of the regions where great coffee beans grow. Sumatra is considered to be best locations for it's high altitude regions. Indonesian Arabica coffee beans are famously low in acidity and have strong body. They have started coffee cultivation during dutch colonial periods in 1700s. Best way to choose your coffee beans is to read the taste notes, and look at the date on the coffee package. We roast on demand, meaning the coffee you buy here will be 3-10 days old when it reaches your door-step depending on your location.
Tano Batak coffee comes from the Lintong and Dolok Sanggul regions near South Lake Toba in Sumatra. At 1,400 to 1,550 masl, this region has the highest coffee growing altitudes in North Sumatra. Olam Specialty Coffee works with six collectors that buy coffee directly from small farmers and in weekly village markets. The collectors wet hull the coffee at 28-32% moisture and then dry it in green houses. Once around 11-12% moisture, they run the coffee over densimetric tables before sending it to Olam in Medan for hand sorting. Given the exceptional quality of these coffees, we process each lot separately as microlots.
