Many of the Indonesian islands were formed by volcanoes. They are therefore mountainous and have rich soil that is ideal for growing coffee. Some of the world's famous coffees are grown on the islands of the Malay Archipelago: Sumatra, Java and Sulawesi. Approximately 15% of all the coffee grown in Indonesia is Arabica. 

Sumatra Mandheling coffee is grown on volcanic slopes of Mount Leuser near port Padang in the Black region (west-central Sumatra). 

A unique traditional Sumatran process - Giling Basah, gives the coffee a great body and flavour, garnished with herbal nuances and a spicy finish. The process involves hulling the parchment off the bean at about 50% moisture content, whereas most of other processes hull coffee at around 10-12% moisture content. This process also gives the green beans a signature dark colour. 
The Grade 1 - Triple-Picked is hand-picked three times for defects. This results in a very consistent cup including only cherries at optimum ripeness. 
Sumatran coffees have the most striking and recognisable flavours in the coffee world. They are full bodied, earthy packed with spice and cedar. 
Lintong takes its name from its home in District of Lintongnihuta. The region lies south-west of Lake Toba, which is one of the world's deepest inland bodies of water. The land in this region rises to high plateau, providing the altitude necessary for arabica cultivation.

Good but not as special as I remeber

This coffee really impressed me when I fist purchased it late last year but it was a little meh this time around. Still a really really good coffee but just thought it was better a few months ago and this time it felt a little dull.

Best coffee!

This coffee suits us perfectly. The quality of Redber coffee is brilliant and pricing unbeatable. Sumatra Linton Grade 1 is a dark rich coffee and ideal for our stove pot.

One of the top Asian coffee's from Redber

This and the Indian Bababudan are for me the top asain coffee's at Redber. Lintong I find a little more interesting than the Mandheling. These coffee's aren't crowd pleasers or what I would see as all day drinkers, in that they are sweet and smooth and a bit bland. Sure it could be toned down as a latte but this has something more to offer with something a simple as a filter coffee machine and a slightly coarser grind than you might use normally. A definite must try, great service and product from Redber as always - I've been buying from them every month for 4years. Since they have expanded and separated their coffee shop and roasting to different buildings in the last few months it *feels* like the coffee has got better.
