Tano Batak coffee has a 16 and up screen size and comes from the Lintong and Dolok Sanggul regions near South Lake Toba in Sumatra. At 1,400 to 1,600 MASL, this region has the highest coffee growing altitudes in North Sumatra. Tano Batak lots are built with the help of six collectors that buy coffee directly from small farmers and in weekly village markets. The collectors wet hull the coffee at 28-32% moisture and then dry it in green houses. Once around 11-12% moisture, they run the coffee over densametric tables before sending it to Olam in Medan for hand sorting. Given the exceptional quality of these coffees, each lot is processed separately as micro-lots.
