Roast: Dark Review Date: March 1998
Origin: Sumatra Price: NA

Blind Assessment: An understated sweet liveliness lifts the rather stolid heart of this coffee. I can't cite any grace notes, simply a very pleasant, sweet lift. Good dimension, but (for a Sumatra) a rather shallow bottom.

Notes: A Sumatra lover's Sumatra, in a darkish roast style. Not flashy but resonantly lively, good dimension, with an understated sweet liveliness. Lintong is a more limited designation within the larger designation of Mandheling, which includes all of the coffees grown around Lake Toba. Zamrud, according to one exporter, refers to traditionally processed coffee in which the flesh or pulp is removed

Who Should Drink It: Another good Sumatra lover's Sumatra, this one in a darkish roast style. Not flashy but resonantly lively.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
