Coffee Story

The best coffees from Sulawesi are grown and processed in the area known as Torajaland, near the upcountry town of Rantepao. The villagers here have a long history of coffee cultivation, and they remain faithful to their traditional methods — planting trees on small plots near their houses. These soaring-roof structures, called Tongkonan, are said to have first been built in heaven. The coffee tastes like it might have been grown there, too.

Above the emerald terraces of rice paddies that produce the staple of Torajans' diet, trees of the old variety grow in even greener jungle. It's their cash crop, one which brings everyone together to pick and process beans as a way of supplementing the family income. We think the unique cultural heritage and time-honored practices of this region have a lot to do with the distinctive taste of its Sulawesi-Kalosi coffee: unusually deep and complex, with rich flavors that evoke the spice-laden air of the Indonesian archipelago.

Peet's has been sourcing the very best lots of this rare coffee for many years. And we take an extra step to duplicate the celestial qualities of old: semi-aging our beans, which enhances their intrinsic earthiness and herbal, nutty notes. Our Sulawesi-Kalosi brews a full-bodied and balanced cup, with a heady multi-dimensional aroma that's nothing short of heavenly.

Full bodied, earthy, and delicious. One of Peet's top choices.

THIS is what coffee should be: full bodied, fruity, earthy with floral notes - all in a single bean. A perfect representative for an island we used used to call Celebes but now Sulawesi. Layers of wonderful flavors; S-K and Sumatra are now the only coffees drunk in our home, with an occasional nod to Garuda Blend.
Whether it's the bean or the roasting skill, makes a perfect cup every time.
Indonesia should be re-christened the coffee islands.

I would definitly get this one again....its very unique and for its cost being low for peets its a must buy. Its taste is almost impossible to describe but its very good and i've never had coffee like it before.

I am a life-long coffee drinker and have probably tasted everything out there. There are more expensive coffees out there, but not better. For me it is a tie between Sulawesi and Aged Sumatra for my early morning wake ups. Both are very full, have discernible nuttiness, and have virtually no after bitterness. I definitely recommend trying them both.

I HAVE BEEN A SERIOUS COFFEE DRINKER ALL MY LIFE, GRADUATING TO DRINKING ONLY WHOLE BEAN, FRESH GROUND COFFEE ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO. I BEGAN DRINKING PEETS WHILE LIVING IN SAN FRANCISCO, A GREAT CITY FOR COFFEE APPRECIATION. I ONCE REMARKED TO A PEETS EMPLOYEE THAT I HAD ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY JAMACIAN BLUE MOUNTAIN COFFEE BUT COULD NEVER AFFORD IT; SHE TOLD ME THAT SULAWESI WAS THE NEXT BEST COFFEE; I TRIED IT & SINCE THEN I DRINK NOTHING ELSE. FOR ANYONE WHO TRULY LOVES RICH, FULL-BODIED, COFFEE WITH A COMPLEX TASTE BUT NOT WITH A BITTER AFTERTASTE LIKE FRENCH ROAST, SULAWESI IS THE COFFEE FOR YOU!

I have tried about 6-7 different Pete's Coffees the past year, mainly dark brews and been very satisfied. This time I tried the Sulawesi-Kalosi blend and did not care for it. It had very unique flavors that tasted more like flowers than coffee. I do not like flavored coffee's and this reminded me of a flavored coffee. There were no issues with quality or freshness. My two favorites remain Major Dickenson's and Ages Sumatra, cant decide which one I like best so I will just alternate them till I decide!

The taste opens with a flash of brightness. The quick tangy start settles into a rich, earthy flavor that glides across the tongue. Super smooth. Thick and solid, like its aroma, with a gently fading finish.

Sulawesi is my "go to coffee" it is rich, unique, it has a lot of depth and complexity. It holds up well when you add cream and a sweetener, but is equally delightful all by it's self. Love, love, love this coffee!

This coffee has an aroma of roasted nuts and chocolate. It's sweet, rich, and full-bodied. Its woodiness is very sharp and it had some distinctive herbal notes. So dry and smooth like hay or earth.

The aroma reminds me of wet earth, moss, and wood. Very full-bodied with low palate acidity. Toasty, dry, herbal and nutty. Very woody.
