The Torajan tribe, living in the central mountain region of the South Sulawesi province, continue to maintain a traditional village lifestyle that includes houses that resemble boats. The growing region has a complex geography that includes humid low-land rice paddies flanked by thousand-foot rock walls capped in perpetual mist. Coffee is grown in this geographic wonderland at elevations that reach 2000 MASL, considered to be some of the highest growing elevations in all of Indonesia. In recent years, producers who cultivate and harvest coffee on farms that average less than 3 acres in size have been organizing and building community micro-mills to improve their processing standards. At these mills, each producer carefully sorts their harvested cherries, depulps, ferments overnight, washes, and lays wet parchment out on patios to shed water. Next the coffee takes a detour from the conventional path of processing in other origins, wherein, the coffee parchment is removed while the coffee still has a high moisture content. This wet-hulling process, called Giling Basah in the Indonesian language, leaves the coffee bean exposed while drying on patios to a moisture percentage acceptable for export and gives the bean its unique bluish color and the hallmark Indonesian profile.

The Dark$13.75 – $87.50
This is our darkest blend. It is how people dream of drinking coffee in Paris, 1990. It’s your favorite diner tucked in the Cascades. This is black as a moonless night.
While most of our coffees lean towards medium roast to lighter style, this coffee is dark. We wanted to offer a coffee that is every bit as ethically sourced as the rest of our coffees, with a focus on being organic, traded fairly, and roasted with care, but cater to those that crave something on the darker side of things. For those that love dark…
