Lake Toba is a volcanic crater lake in northern Sumatra, the largest volcano-tectonic lake in the world with its 86,90 km long and 27,35 km wide. The Mandheling, a traditional cultural group in South East Asia living mainly in the northern part of Sumatra, lives also around this lake. Children and land are viewed as sources of personal pride for them that cause one to receive status and respect.

Today, over 90% of the coffee production in North Sumatra occurs on smallholder farms averaging almost 2,5 acres. Our specialty grade Mandheling Lake Toba coffee comes from the village of Sitahoan, where it was triple hand-picked. The natural processing of the coffee itself is actually the traditional processing method of the Mandheling tribe since the early of the 18th century. Nowadays, the natural process are not widely practised anymore since it requires longer processing time, up to 2 months from the time of the picking of the cherries until the packing of the green beans.

With a body as full as any premium coffees, Mandheling Lake Toba can be downright syrupy. Despite a subdued acidity the tastes are complex and intense, and a chocolate sweet flavor often holds earthy undertones. Notes of licorice may also be present.
