    New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Sulawesi Toraja Dark

Roast: NA Review Date: March 2001
Origin: Toraja/Kalossi region of southwestern Sulawesi (Celebes), Indonesia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The rather aggressive dark roast simplifies the coffee, intensifying the bitter tones, dampening the sweet, and turning hints of chocolate toward spice. The aftertaste is attractively bittersweet but thin.

Notes: . Orleans Coffee Exchange is a quality-oriented wholesale roaster founded in 1983 in New Orleans.

Who Should Drink It: A French-Roast-drinker 's Sulawesi: the bitter bite of an assertive dark roast complicated by a twist of spice.


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.
