More about the coffee and where it comes from….

Raja Batak is a semi-washed (hand pulped) Arabica coffee produced in North Sumatra, west of Lake Toba at a height of 1000 - 1600 meters above sea level
Raja Batak means 'King of Batak'. The Batak are a number of ‘in-between’ related ethnic groups in Northern Sumatra with a language of their own. The most common known group within the Batak are the Toba Batak. The Batak most probably left the Philippines and Borneo for the highlands of North Sumatra approximately three to four thousand years ago. According to Toba legend, Si Raja Batak, the mythical ancestor of all Batak, came down on the Central Mountain west of Lake Toba a long time ago and decided to settle there due to the beauty of the area. According to scientists, Lake Toba arose more than 70 thousand years ago as a result of a mega volcanic eruption which clouded the earth for many years. The lake itself measures 100 kms in length, 31 kms in width and has a depth of more than 450 meters. The area is most suitable for the production of a high quality of coffee due to its height, climate, and soil fertility.

This coffee in the cup is not a typical Ling Tong with a heavy body, syrupy flavour, spiciness and tones of dark chocolate. What is unusual is it has a remarkably raspberry fruit flavour, bright body with clean dark chocolate and mild spiciness in the aftertaste. Elegance that is very pleasing - it has body with finesse, and we are very pleased to be able to offer you this fine coffee.
