TOARCO TORAJA - The ideal coffee

TOARCO TORAJA The ideal coffee
Toraja is located right on the equator, in the central mountain district of Sulawesi in Indonesia. Toraja coffee has long been praised as a masterpiece of Arabica coffee, with its mellow aroma and well balanced taste. When the plantations were shut down during the war, Toraja became a legend. KEY COFFEE could not ignore the loss, and established a directly operated plantation with the goal of reviving Toraja. Our efforts were a success, and now the great coffee is once again available for coffee lovers to savor.


The Highest Quality TOARCO TORAJA
Toarco Toraja offers world class quality without compare. Our plantation, 1500 meters above sea level, is a simply superb environment for coffee bean growing. To maintain our strict quality standards. And we choose only beans by hand for perfection, with requires done by experts. Special containers with temperature controlled at 15℃ are used to transport the coffee to Japan where highly trained staff people roast it. Our goal is coffee better than any other and we do everything possible to achieve that standard of excellence.
