Sulawesi (Celebes) Coffee

Many consider Sulawesi coffee beans to improve on the flavor of Sumatran coffee with a lighter body, smooth buttery qualities, and higher acidity.  The Toraja region is the source of most of the high quality Sulawesi coffee.  One may find coffee from the Toraja region marketed as Kalossi since this is the old colonial Dutch name for this region.  The complex and earthy flavors are in high demand in Japan and the United States, causing it to be more expensive than coffees from the neighboring islands.
