Sulawesi primarily produces washed coffees for export. PT Toarco, a Japanese-Indonesian joint mill and export venture are expert at producing clean, sweet, fruity coffees we simply love.
Toarco owns Pedamaran Plantation at 900–1250 meters and also purchases wet parchment (at 40% moisture) coffees 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. Most of the coffee produced in Toraja is S795 variety, developed in India to be resistant to leaf rust. The genetics of this variety is Typica and Liberica.
