Grown in mountainous Tana Toraja region of Sulawesi Indonesia ,Toraja coffee is known throughout the speciality coffee world for its relatively low yet vibrant acidity. While other coffees can leave a bitter aftertaste, Toraja's bitterness vanishes in seconds. I find a bit of rustic brown sugar sweetness in the cup profile with a hint of dried fruit and a pungent spicy quality.
The White Eagle refers to the old growth of the Typica coffee trees in this region, some of which are nearly 250 years old. The output from these trees is not very significant, but the quality is outstanding. They are grown at higher elevations and also not with banana trees, as is typical. Instead, they are dispersed throughout the jungle canopy.
