Toarco Jaya, The True
Toraja Coffee.

In the 1970s, there were only Rantepao coffee and Kalosi coffee that is known within the coffee industry. These coffees are processed by local coffee farmers in Toraja and Enrekang. In 1977, PT. Toarco Jaya creates a new name for the origin and registered it as 'Toarco Toraja Coffee', which then gain recognition worldwide as “Toraja Coffee”. As the first step, PT. Toarco Jaya created and run its own private plantation known as 'Pedamaran Plantation'. The plantation covers 530 Hectares of land in Pedamaran, North Toraja. After establishing the plantation, the nursery is created and Toarco invites local farmers to plant arabica coffee trees to reinvegorate the passion for producing quality coffee beans. Furthermore, the farmers are then educated and trained from picking and sorting ripe cherries, best practice for full wash processing method and drying the beans to Toarco standard. This is followed by strict buying, sorting and packing method, where in each of these steps involves cupping to assure quality and maintain consistency throughout the line. All this for no compromise strive for excellence and perfection in a cup to become “Toarco Toraja Coffee”

After 40 years of contribution, Toarco Jaya mission for only perfection in a cup have created a bond within the people of Toraja. This is due to Toarco's contribution to improving the lives of all the coffee farmers that strive for the same goal by paying the most premium price.
