The reason coffee costs so much Reason #237. We sure have missed these ladies. But hand sorting to get top quality is not cheap.

Why does my coffee cost so much from Indonesia reason #234. We recently traveled to Toraja on the island of Sulawesi. While there we visited on of the larger private coffee estates in the country. I was surprised to find out that their entire output of around 1000 tons a year is carried out on 3 ton trucks like this one due to road conditions. These loads are then transloaded into containers along the main export port of Makassar which is an 8 hour drive from the estate. So in a era of increasing fuel prices imagine what those truckloads are doing to the price per kg of coffee.

Many thanks to Ibu Mala and Bapak Ronny of Toraja Red Beans for hosting our recent sourcing trip to Toraja Utara in South Sulawesi. Good coffee to come from this origin this year. Stay tuned.

What exactly does it mean for coffee to be ethically sourced? We recently gave our thoughts on this to @algrano our European sourcing partner. Head over to hear what Troy thinks about it. Link in Bio.

We now QC and grade all our green bean purchases at the farm or cooperative. After Milling on our own for a few years now put quality standards for green purchases have gotten very stringent. Here Rendra our mill foreman is getting to work on a sample before making the purchasing decision.
