Origin of The Beans

Where does Sulawesi - Organically Grown's beans come from?
The Region

South Sulawesi province, a coffee region in Indonesia, is distinguished by its high-altitude farms, often reaching 2000 MASL. The area's complex terrain, with mist-capped cliffs and rice paddies, contributes to a unique coffee profile. Local producers focus on quality, using traditional methods like Giling Basah for processing. This region's coffee, known for its distinct flavor and bluish hue, benefits from the collaboration with exporters, enhancing quality control and global reach.

The Farm

In South Sulawesi's central mountains, the Torajan tribe's traditional villages host farms averaging less than 3 acres, producing coffee at elevations up to 2000 MASL, among Indonesia's highest. This intricate terrain of mist-capped cliffs and rice paddies shapes the unique coffee profile. Producers are now enhancing quality through community micro-mills, where they meticulously sort, depulp, ferment, and wash cherries. Uniquely, they use Giling Basah (wet-hulling), exposing beans during drying, creating a distinctive bluish hue and flavor. Collaborating with Indokom, these groups overcome logistical hurdles, ensuring better traceability, quality, and market access, boosting their earnings and global presence.

Process & Harvest

Wet Hulled coffee, a unique processing method primarily used in Indonesia, involves removing the coffee bean's parchment layer while it's still moist. This technique results in a faster drying process and imparts a distinctive earthy, full-bodied flavor profile with a hint of herbal notes. It also gives the beans a characteristic bluish-green appearance, distinguishing them from coffees processed by other methods. This method is particularly popular in regions like Sumatra and Sulawesi.
