This coffee known as Tolu Batak, was taken from the socio-cultural philosophy of Batak. Tolu Batak or as in the native language called Dalihan Na Tolu means three pillars in the Batak society system. We experienced this philosophy at Lintong Nihuta, a village of a thousand small lakes located at 1,410 to 1,500 meters above sea level in the area of Borbor, Toba Samosir Regency, North Sumatra.
Lintong holds a landscape found nowhere else. Though it is more than 1,400 meters ASL, its ground is very flat especially after it experienced the biggest volcanic eruption in history; the eruption of the Old Toba Volcano. Its impact brought minerals deep in the soil to rise up on the surface (now known as topsoil). The farmers in Lintong were then forced to adapt to the “dead mineral” soil and because of this, a thick compost and carefully selected varietal of coffee were established called the Onan Gajang. Some say, this varietal is a cross between Bourbon and Ateng. The flavor of the Tolu Batak beans itself is derived from a connection between nature, culture, and the variety of coffee.
