Blind Assessment: Sweetly herbaceous, deeply aromatic, rich-toned. Dark chocolate, tangerine, fresh-cut thyme, dried plum, magnolia in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with balanced, gently vibrant acidity; very smooth, syrupy mouthfeel. Especially long, flavor-saturated finish that carries over all the aroma and flavor notes from the cup.
Notes: Toarco (TOraja ARabica COffee) is a coffee project in the famous Sulawesi coffee growing region of Toraja developed and financed by Japan’s Key Coffee Company and its Indonesian partners. Toarco coffees are processed by variants of the orthodox wet or washed method, giving them a brighter and cleaner profile than Sulawesi coffees processed by the locally traditional wet-hulling method. JBC Coffee Roasters’ vision is simple: “let the coffee lead the way” through sourcing and roasting the best and most unique coffees available and rewarding the farmers who grow those coffees with substantial premiums.

The Bottom Line: A top-notch Sulawesi cup with a sweet-herb throughline, rich chocolate, crisp herb, and balanced fruit and floral notes, with a long, lingering finish.
