Sulawesi

Sulawesi coffees are clean and sound in the cup. They generally display nutty or warm spice notes, like cinnamon or cardamom. Hints of black pepper are sometimes found. Their sweetness, as with most Indonesian coffees, is closely related to the body of the coffee. The after-taste coats the palate on the finish and is smooth and soft.

Toraja is located in a lush mountainous areas with plants and wildlife, with iron-rich soil and a cool comfortable climate in the highlands of Sulawesi. Volcanic soil forms the perfect environment for growing coffee beans. The development of the Toraja region has been historically and politically influenced by the coffee trade since 1,850. Today, coffee in Toraja is a high-value commodity with the majority still being grown by independent smallholders on family owned plots.

Our Sulawesi coffee production covers the Toraja highlands in the regions of North Toraja and Tana Toraja, as well as to the west of Toraja in the regions of Mamasa.
