Facts

The most famous coffees from Indonesia are those from the island of Sumatra, and are processed as Wet-Hulled, or giling basah, which lends them their characteristic earthy, savory, almost meaty flavors.

Sulawesi, on the other hand, primarily produces washed coffees for export, and the team at PT Toarco, a Japanese-Indonesian joint mill and export venture, are expert at producing clean, sweet, fruity coffees.

Toarco owns Pedamaran Plantation at 900–1250 meters, and also and purchases wet parchment (at 40% moisture) coffees from from small producers at collection points in Perangian, Pango Pango, Minanga, and Perindingan. Once collected, the coffee is trucked to Pedamaran Plantation immediately after purchase, where it is dried using mechanical Yamamoto vertical dryers as well as Pinalhalense guardiolas, or horizontal dryers like those found throughout Colombia. The mechanical dryers assist in maintaining uniform drying, and helps the processing go more efficiently and cleanly. The drying typically takes 72 hours.

If a producer wants to sell their parchment coffee toToarco, they need to get certified to the quality standards as far as selective picking, storage, transportation, moisture levels, etc. Farmers are issued ID cards that allow them to sell their coffee at various purchasin g points in the Tana Toraja region during the market week. PT Toarco is focused on providing education and support to its producer partners: Currently the company offers once-yearly classes for producers to receive their ID cards, but they hope to expand their education opportunities to twice yearly and include things such as cherry selection, planting and picking techniques, and fermentation. They also hold a party at the end of the harvest cycle to celebrate, giving out awards to producers such as depulpers and other necessary tools: About 150 to 200 producers attend the party every year.

Reviews

More citrus than toffee
By
Given the description I was expecting a sweet note from toffee and cane sugar description. Personally I would say I got more of the citrus element and perhaps caramel. For a relatively light roast it has lots of depth.
