  • Sulawesi Toraja Sapan

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2010
Origin: Sulawesi, Indonesia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Aromatically complete, with round sweet fruitiness, earthy aromatic wood and a hint of flowers. In the cup full body and smooth mouthfeel; sweet raisiny fruit deepens to wood, earth and dark chocolate. The deeper flavor notes carry into the finish, lingering sweetly in the long.

Notes: Coffee from the Toraja region of Sulawesi, once Celebes, typically displays a wild and often earth-toned character, the result of unorthodox methods of fruit removal and drying. Wicked Joe is a micro-roaster based in Maine with a mission of providing their customers with "epic coffee ... that is kind to both the earth and to the farmers."

Who Should Drink It: A balanced cup of its type, with sweet fruit complications overlaying earth and aromatic wood.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
