Espresso & Roast of the Week. Indonesia Blue Toraja

Grown at high altitudes on the island of Sulawesi (formerly Celebes) in the middle of the Malay archipelago in Indonesia. Kalossi is the small town in central Sulawesi which serves as the collection point for the coffee and Toraja is the mountainous area in which the coffee is grown. Sulawesi exhibits a rich, full body, well-balanced acidity (slightly more than Sumatra) and is multi-dimensional in character. It has dark chocolate and ripe fruit undertones. (dixit Wikipedia).

I think it's an Indonesian with more of everything (body, acidity, fruit and cleanliness) then any other conventional Indonesian I tasted the last couple of years.
Mostly this one is roasted a bit (or more) into second crack, but we proof that a tad lighter is much more tasteful. And suitable for press or filter.

Come on over for a bag. Price € 4,00/250 grams. A steal!
