Sulawesi (Celebes) Kalosi

Wet Hulled, Sun Dried

Our new shipment of Sulawesi Kalosi is here!

This is an outstanding new shipment of Sulawesi traceable to smallholder farmers in the Utara village located in the Tana Toraja district of Sulawesi.
These smallholder farmers are families in the village who actually shade grow the coffee in plots around and near their homes.
You can know with certainty that purchasing this crop of Sulawesi will have a direct and positive impact on these families.

General Flavor Observations
Sulawesi (Celebes) Kalosi

This Sulawesi Kalossi is an exceptionally complex. A myriad of flavors surround a huge, deep body full of spiciness.
The mouth feel is rich and creamy; the aroma yields enticing notes of oak and spice; the acidity is very mild and the finish is silky and smooth.

No other Indonesian coffee is quite like a great Sulawesi. This is a stunning coffee that sets itself apart!

Roast Level Profile Notes
Sulawesi (Celebes) Kalosi

This lot of Sulawesi Kalosi is one of those coffees that works great at almost every roast level.
We chose the Vienna Roast as our default simply because that is the one that is ordered most frequently, but Full City and Full City (+) are outstanding as well!

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast will change the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

With this roast you are going to get huge herbal qualities, a bit of melon, a snappy acidity, and a crisp finish. Depth will still be there, but not as much. A daring choice!.

Full City Roast (medium roast)

A very nice roast for this coffee. Chocolate is more of a milk chocolate, notes of black cherry, forest floor, and spice. Smooth, smooth!

Full City (+) Roast

If you are seeking more bakers chocolate, silky smoothness, broader flavor and richness, with notes of cinnamon / cardamom, then this will be a great roast for you.

Vienna Roast

Deep, deep, syrupy body, dark chocolate, extremely mild acidity and all with the complexity and spice!
This would be an excellent choice as an after dinner coffee with dessert or following a rich meal.

French Roast

While you will sacrifice some of the spiciness and complexity, a French roast will yield that deep, rich, strong 'after dinner' coffee that will provide a satisfying and lingering quality you would savor

My new favorite!
I have come to love the Sulawesi Kalosi more than the Monsooned Malabar, one of my all time favorites. Now I'm trying to decide which roast level I prefer.
