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.

SUMATRA LINTONG GRADE 1- Medium-Dark Roast Coffee freshly ground for a cafetiere

A very nice coffee but the contents of the bag seems to disappear very quickly. I'm wondering whether there is a hole in the bottom?!

Nice!

Nicely balanced and very clean for Indonesia. Advertised acidity is there but in the background. Great fruit flavours to balance the typical earthy backdrop. Roasted medium, medium style grind and medium amount of coffee. V60 pour over method. Was slightly nervous of the leap from Central and South American styles to Indonesia, but the risk was well rewarded.
