Dolok Sanggul, Lake Toba, Sumatra

Dolok Sanggul, Lake Toba, Sumatra

Green unripe coffee cherry from Dolok Sanggul area of Lintong, Sumatra. While these branches are incredibly loaded with fruit, the crop is smaller overall. Dolok Sanggul just arrived this week, and we'll be rolling it out in a few days after I finish the review. The Onan Ganjang sample that arrived at the same time is cupping really well, with that herbal, complex flavor true to the Lintong appellation.
