Coffee Review

Coffee Story

This coffee hails from the Lintong and Dolok Sanggul areas near the south-eastern end of the famous Lake Toba and is grown by indigenous Batak people. The Batak people have been involved in coffee production since the late 19th century when coffee was brought by the Dutch. This particular cooperative has well established relationships with the local farmers and takes pride in sourcing the finest coffees, while remaining committed to social and environmental sustainability.

Female Empowerment: In Batak culture, women are in charge. Women take care of the farms, harvest the cherries, process and then bring the produce to the market. The collectors at the market, called 'Pajuar' are also women. Men are involved in the hulling and drying activities. This is truly a socially responsible handcrafted coffee that affords empowerment to women.
