Indonesian Sulawesi Toarco Jaya A Fully Washed

$9.39

Crisp tones, slight citrus note with hints of soft fruit, full bodied, sweet and clean this is a stronger cup of a coffee! Just a bit of the classic Indo earthiness, I might link this coffee closer to an exotic Colombian than an Indo (which is way cool). Very nice rich chocolate tones add to the mix of delicate flavors present in this cup. A slight smoky aftertaste can be picked up at the darker roast points. This is a must try for anyone who likes a real full bodied complex cup of joe!

Description

New 2021/22 crop! Finally the wonderful Toarco coffee is back after missing the last two season!

This is the A screen, one size down from the AA but a bit sweeter than the AA with hints of soft fruit that are quite tasty! Just as tasty and beautiful as the rest of the Toarco line.

Just about as unique as you can get for a Sulawesi. Thick and creamy but the flavor profile is very far from your average semi-washed Indonesian cup.

For years, this coffee was only available in Japan, as the estate is owned by the Japanese roaster Key Coffee. In recent years they have made it available to us. Established in 1976, this plantation has been undertaking a fully washed process that is unlike anything else produced in Asia. After the harvest, the cherry is stripped off by a mechanical de-pulper and the parchment is allowed to ferment overnight, with no water added. The next morning, the parchment is thoroughly rinsed in tile lined channels and laid out to sun dry. Every parcel is cupped five times between the patio drying and the final bagging. The plantation has a total of 530 hectares, and 300 hectares are planted.

Toarco owns Pedamaran Plantation at 900–1250 meters, and also and 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.

Roasting Notes:
We enjoyed this Sulawesi at a strong medium roast, still nicely complex and balanced. Darker roast will promote that very thick and creamy cup but will mute most of the brightness which is pretty cool to have in the flavor profile.
