  • Info
    Toarco Jaya is a washing station in the Pango Pango region of Tana Toraja, a regency of the South Sulawesi Province of Indonesia. Coffee was introduced to Sulawesi in 1950 by the Dutch East India Company and similar to neighbouring island Sumatra, coffee was traditionally naturally processed.
    In 1976, a Japanese and Indonesian joint venture saw the creation of Toarco, a company established to produce the best quality arabica coffee from North Taraja. Toarco purchases wet-parchment from various small producers located between 1300 and 1900 masl, and has since introduced them to alternative processing methods such as semi-washed and washed.

    Toarco created and currently runs its own private plantation, known as Pedamaran Plantation, which covers 530 hectares of land in North Taraja. Toarco invites local farmers to plant coffee trees to reinvigorate the passion for producing high quality coffee, and help educate and train on best picking, sorting and processing practices. The majority of coffee produced in Toraja is S795 variety, developed in India to be resistant to leaf rust.
