Indonesia has dispersed the sweet aroma of a world class Arabica coffee since the 17th century, after the Dutch opened their coffee plantations in Sulawesi. One of these plantations was Rante Karua, Bolokan, located in Tana Toraja area, which is about 450 km north of Makassar. Initially, it was owned by a Dutch gentleman by the name of H.J. Stock van Dykk.
However, during the revolutionary era, the fate of the plantation became unknown –as if ‘disappeared’– until it was taken over by the Indonesian government, and, eventually, managed by PT. Sulotco Jaya Abadi.
The plantation, located at 1500 – 1700 meters above sea level, is known as the best coffee producer in the world. A well-respected coffee entrepreneur from the USA, J. Martines, called it “quality coffee in the world”. MORE
For Mr Karundeng, the Director and his team, quality of Arabica Rantekarua Toraja is above everything.
With this in mind, he spearheaded his team with honesty and strong moral principle to bring up their world class coffee bean quality. MORE
