Sulawesi by Plantation Coffee Roasters Review |
  • Plantation Coffee Roasters

    Elk Grove, California
  • Sulawesi

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

Blind Assessment: Replete with earth, leather, and vaguely animal and forest notes. In structure leans more toward the bitter side of bittersweet, but blooms with chocolate opulence for a moment toward the finish.

Notes: "Develop a nose for coffee," declares Plantation Coffee 's website, over a fisheye-lens photo of owner Dan Davis 's own personal facial appendage. Plantation is a quality-oriented wholesale roaster founded in 1994 in the Sacramento, California suburb of Elk Grove.

Who Should Drink It: Coffee adventurers. Brings the forest floor to the cup with style and pungent authority.


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.
