Away from that, the coffee is not very complex like other coffee. You might be wondering why it is extra dense. The reason behind this is that it is grown in regions of up to 1500 meters above sea level. That is the reason why the coffee beans will sit well to dark roasting. It will achieve this without destroying the flavor. It can also be Vienna roasting.

Unlike other types of coffee, this coffee is harvested in May and November season. Therefore, it will be available in the market around August. The method of processing this type of coffee is through the dry processing method.

Taraja coffee

The most preferred coffee in Sulawesi is grown in Toraja. In this region, coffee is grown in the highlands around the island center. This region has about 1500 meters above sea level. Coffee farmers in this region use traditional practices to grow coffee. Additionally, most of the farmers have small scale plantations.

From harvesting to sorting out, coffee is handpicked. Handpicking greatly contributes to the high quality of coffees grown in this region. Remember that only ripe and high quality coffee cherries are handpicked. The main reason why this method of coffee harvesting is used is the steep terrain.

You can easily identify the coffee Arabica from this region by unique elements that include caramel aroma and full body. The scarcity of coffee makes it one of the most sought out coffees in the market.

Coffee processing

Picking coffee in Sulawesi begins when the coffee beans start turning red. While small scale farmers use handpicking, larger estates use machinery to harvest the coffees. Most people nowadays prefer using the hand picking method since only ripe and defect free coffee beans are picked using this method. After the beans have been picked, they will stay for about two days before undergoing further processing.

Furthermore, most coffee beans are processed through dry processing. This process takes several weeks. Dry processing entails drying the beans under the sun outdoors. The coffee beans are mostly dried by the roadsides. You should not allow the coffee beans to be rained on. The rain might end up compromising the quality of the coffee beans. If you know more about coffee, then you might be aware that the coffee beans are dried till they have low moisture content.

Final Thoughts

Sulawesi coffee is complex with sweet and fine taste. Additionally, green beans are roasted to make them aromatic and brown ready for a favorite brew. Feel free to ask any questions regarding Sulawesi Coffee.
