Sumatra Lintong - Pak Joner

We have a new Sumatra On Siphon right now at caffe d'bolla! Sumatra Lintong - Pak Joner.

Li ntong Nihota is the town that become synonymous with the entire southern part of Lake Toba. This coffee is from a local coffee collector known as Joner. Farmers sell to collectors, so they are the ones who determine the quality of the coffee. Joner buys direct and specially prepares and sorts his coffees according to density. Remarkable!

In the cup it's cinnamon stick, molasses, and black tea with a malty sweetness. Hints of Dutch cocoa.

Come try it!

Ethiopia Suke Quto

This season's Ethiopia Suke Quto is back! We currently have it available Whole Bean and On Siphon. It's delicious!

This coffee comes from Suke Quto, a producer group in the southern Guji zone of Shakiso. Coffee farming has been a core part of the Guji Oromo culture, and it shows in the results of this wet processed crop. The flavors are distinctly different from Yirga Cheffe, and Sidamo.

In the cup it's juicy peach and jasmine, with hints of melon and a caramelized sugar sweetness.
