product

STORYarticle-shape

Not your father's Sumatra. This new generation Sumatra has flavor notes of cacao, cedar and bell pepper with a hint of lavender floral notes. A cup that is very clean and balanced while still providing the body one expects from Indonesia.

The Sumatra Lintong Mutu Batak comes from selected producers surrounding the town of Lintongnihuta in the Provinsi Sumatera Utara (Northern Sumatra Province). This specific area is located on the southern shores of Lake Toba, which is the largest volcanic lake in the world. The soil around the southern part of the lake is volcanic which leads to exceptional terrain for growing coffee. The town of Lintong Nihuta sits on a plateau that ranges from 1000 meters with a few farms to around 1300 meters.

The producers of this coffee are small farmers who have been recognized by our staff to produce exceptional raw material. These selected farmers run small two to four-hectare plantations with each hectare consists of approximately 1,000 coffee trees. The farmer grows, harvests, and de-pulps the coffee on the farm. After de-pulping he stores the coffee overnight, allowing it to ferment and washes the following day. After washing the farmer will briefly dry the coffee to remove the moisture from the exterior of the parchment and delivers the coffee to the production facility.

Wet hulling, or giling basah, is the traditional method used in Indonesia. And although both the name and the method are very similar to wet processing, the cup characteristics are incredibly different. Further information

After the coffee is dried to 12 to 13% moisture content in the greenhouses, the coffee will be delivered to the warehouse in Medan. It is inspected and graded again upon arrival to ensure no errors were made during processing. The coffee is then warehoused for 2 months. Then it goes through the final grading, hand sorted, bagged and ready for export.

Klatch Coffee is a woman-owned, family-operated coffee company based in Southern California and distributed worldwide. We source, roast, and brew our own coffee, and apply our scientific method to accomplish a taste best described with expletives and exclamations. Some say it’s obsessive, we say it’s fun. Our methodical approach is a mix of coffee artistry and mad science — obsessively meticulous and thoroughly documented over many tastings to get it just right. We call it our “peak of flavor method,” and it’s earned us a spot on the world coffee stage for three decades and counting. Here at Klatch, we spend a lot of energy searching for and studying about the best coffee we can offer. We value people and planet before profit, and at Klatch Coffee, the conversation around coffee never stops. Our Klatch Direct Trade Coffee journey begins with a partnership with like-minded producers - those who share our same commitment to ethics, excellence, environmental stewardship, quality, and community. We follow a Direct Trade Coffee model that is designed to meet the needs of the families in today’s market, and buy straight from the growers, cutting out the traditional middleman. In doing so, we're able to pay well above Fair-Trade minimums - by at least 25% - and often pay double or triple those prices based on the cup quality. Our buying model is designed to push the envelope of quality coffee by encouraging viable, meaningful careers in specialty coffee agriculture. We only buy Cup of Excellence quality coffee and above, often 90 points or more, and we believe that a farmer that grows such award-winning coffee should be given their due. Through our Klatch Direct Trade model, we have not only simplified the supply chain, but we've also improved the quality and sustainability for farmers and have built long-term relationships with producers in various countries.
