Sulawesi Toraja


Starting at $6.50 / lb
As low as $5.50 / lb

A shade-grown coffee from the Indonesian island previously known as Celebes. This coffee is the "sleeper" on this site, and our personal favorite - an outstanding cup for those who like a clean, full-bodied, aromatic, wild and spicy, highly-complex brew. How's that for a string of adjectives! You will be able to smell the nuttiness of the freshly-brewed coffee from 100 feet away - no joke. Equally good for jump-starting your day or washing away the unpleasantries of those rare "bad days" we all have. The Toraja is a cleaner, slightly brighter cup than our other Sulawesi, the Kalossi.

People Who Bought This Also Bought

Brilliant acidity, a medium body, and sweet flavors of orange citrus, caramelized sugar, and fine chocolate. It is impeccably balanced with a long, satisfying finish
This has an anise flavor which adds spice to the dark chocolate and vanilla bean flavors.
The aroma is rich, dark, chocolate, classic on the nose. Acidity is low to medium and the body is full. The flavor is subtle: dark, mocha notes, and rich.

I ordered some Jamaican just to see if it was worth the price, it's not. The Sulawesi is far better. A wonderful cup. The kind of flavor that makes say WOW! Take it off the heat just shy of second crack, or, for an entirely different taste, a few seconds into. But for gosh sakes, don't burn it !

Tried this at Full City Plus, rested 1 day and it tasted really burnt. Tried again at Full City and let it rest for 3 days. It was perfect, perfect, perfect! Cathy

Roasted at City+ it was very woody/earthy, and I noticed that sweetness and spiceness. I hate to overroast a nice coffee, but I couldn't get enough of this coffee when I roasted it darker (FC+ and up). Even without rest this coffee is nice, though rest really did nice things.

I first tried Sulawesi at a Greenberry's Coffee shop in Palm Beach County. It was great, but nothing can beat roasting this stuff yourself. A FULL RICH bean that shines blindingly in the pan as it gets darker and darker...Just roasting it is a pleasure! I never met a cup of Sulawesi I didn't like. Its smooth and robust at the same time and definitely will give you a 'lift'. Maddie

I keep going back to this one. Definitely has become my favorite as well. No matter how I roast it, it is good, full-bodied and flavorful. If you haven't tried it, you need to--just once & you'll be hooked!

Right on!! I had those same thoughts when I first tried it ~10 years ago...and it's still one of our favorites.

This is our favorite coffee, too. I knew I perfected my roasting/brewing technniques when this one came out as the best I've ever done.
