Unlike Sumatran coffee, which is known for its robust body, Sulawesi beans are light-bodied. The light body combined with the low acidity gives the resulting drink a deep and creamy texture and flavour.

Description

Sulawesi Toraja

Sulawesi Toraja is grown in the Toraja region in the south-eastern highlands of Sulawesi, an Indonesian island east of Borneo. This area is extremely mountainous and is populated by the Toraja ethnic group. The coffee is grown at extremely high altitudes compared with other coffees from the same region. While most Sumatran coffee is grown as low as 800 meters above sea level, Sulawesi Toraja is grown 1100-1800 meters above sea level. The Toraja area is humid and has just the right amount of rainfall needed to keep coffee trees happy. While larger plantations exist, a significant amount of coffee is grown on small family farms. Coffee production on these farms is almost an afterthought and is used as a means to supplement existing income. It’s not unusual to see trees planted on whatever land is suitable and leftover.

The majority of coffee grown in Indonesia is Robusta; however, Toraja is the exception. Thanks to the ideal conditions, the area is perfect for growing Arabica beans. As a result around 95% of the coffee grown in this region is Arabica.

Sulawesi Toraja is fairly unique in that it uses a third processing method called Giling Basah (wet grinding). During this process, the coffee cherries are fed into a pulper that removes most, but not all of the fruit. A thin layer of mucilage is left on the beans. The beans are then stored for about 24 hours before the mucilage is removed. Finally, the beans are left to dry before being prepared for shipping.

Unlike Sumatran coffee, which is known for its robust body, Sulawesi beans are light-bodied. The light body combined with the low acidity gives the resulting drink a deep and creamy texture and flavour.

In terms of flavour, Sulawesi is beautifully balanced with no single flavour taking too much prominence. When drinking Sulawesi expect to taste notes of ripe fruit, dark chocolate, mushrooms, herbs, and sweet spices. It’s also fairly common to smell an almost cedar wood-like aroma.
