Origins: Tana Toraja. Coffee was introduced into Sulawesi by the Dutch East India Company centuries ago. The Toraja region is named for the Torajan tribe, an indigenous tribe living in the South Sulawesi mountains. This mild coffee delivers earth-toned cup characteristics that are rich and sweet.
Process: Wet Hulled (Giling Basah) then sun dried. The wet-hulling process mutes the acidity of the coffee while emphasizing its body. This method is common in Indonesia due to the high-humidity climate
Flavors: Medium-bodied with notes of tobacco and elderberry with an earthy, mild acidity
Cupping Notes: 6/2023- Medium-bodied with notes of tobacco and elderberry with an earthy, mild acidity. Not as heavy as a Sumatra, but does taste different than coffee from Flores or Java.
Indonesian Notes: Indonesia is the fourth biggest producer of coffee in the world, and 90% of that volume is grown by smallholder farmers – as opposed to large estates.
