Current Offering

Sumatra Lintong

Although Lintong is a specific region in Northwestern Sumatra, it is also used as a trade name to describe coffees from the greater Lake Toba region with a particular flavor profile, like the one this coffee has. Our partners at Volkopi in Sumatra selected coffees from small garden farms in the Lake Toba region and blended them together to create this lot. The coffee was processed using the island’s traditional wet-hull method, which is vastly different from other commonly used processing styles. A thin papery substance called parchment surrounds all coffee seeds, and the process of removing this layer is called hulling. Most coffees are hulled after drying when their moisture level reaches 10-13%. Wet-hulled coffees are hulled with much higher moisture levels between 35-50% and finish drying after the removal of this protective layer. Like many processing methods, wet hulling was born out of necessity due to the method’s ability to dry coffee quickly because of the parchment layer being removed. This is beneficial in Sumatra’s damp climate and cloud cover which render slower drying methods impractical. Coffees from Sumatra are known for having earthy flavors and a heavy body that in large part can be attributed to the wet hull process where the coffee is more exposed while drying. This coffee is no exception, its assertive flavors of aromatic wood and lemongrass showcase the unique flavors that coffee from Sumatra can offer.

Roast Magazine's 2010 Roaster of The Year Award Winner!

Equator's commitment to a sustainable, transparent approach spans more than two decades. Today, Equator operates nine cafes predominantly in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2016, the U.S. Small Business Administration honored Equator by naming Equator the "National Small Business of the Year." Since their founding, Equator has been a leader in sustainability and social responsibility. In 2011, they formalized their commitment to sustainability by becoming a certified B Corporation, making it the first California coffee roaster to do so. Equator’s philosophy on coffee is built from a question: how do they create value from their perch in the coffee supply chain, standing at the intersection between local and distant coffee communities? It is this question that continues to frame their narrative as they strive to grow a business that values the stakeholders in both communities with respect for the people, the process, and the product. Equator believes that quality underlies economic and environmental sustainability, and this is the pillar of our approach. They support environmentally sound certifications, as well as practices that produce the highest quality coffee while securing a dignified life for those who produce it.
