Bold, intense, full bodied and delicious
Sulawesi is a small Indonesian island that grows amazing arabica coffees.
Like so many of the exotic lots we offer for sale, Sulawesi is also a rare and difficult origin to source.
It's been 6 years since we had a Sulawesi coffee and this lot is just the best.
We have barely 1 ton available and it will go fast.
Sulawesi coffees are absolutely delicious - intense, dark and brooding cups with punchy sweetness and a rich, lush and rewarding finish.
Get your mind around these taste notes.
Yep, it's got the lot and then more.
What's even better is the full, rounded body, dark fruits and candy sweetness.
Only for a limited time - get in quick, you won't be disappointed.

How we roast your coffee
20 years of roasting every weekday, 51 weeks a year. A lot of batches and a level of experience unmatched in the Australian coffee market.
The same person who roasted that very first batch is exactly the same person that roasts every single batch today. Another feature rarely matched for brands our size.
Roasting coffee has never been about freaky talent or secrets passed down through generations. Nope, to roast and understand the roasting process, it is all about practice, practice and more practice. There are no shortcuts or innovative tools and systems to help jump ahead of the competition.
It's how we can produce the best tasting and most consistent coffee in Australia. Match that with superior quality ingredients and the most advanced infrastructure, mature processes and you have the solution for great tasting coffee.
We roast to target sweetness, acidity, flavor, body and finish to generate the best possible balance across all those competing elements.
Our espresso style is a medium roast suitable for premium cafes that care about quality. Filter style roasts are lighter to meet the demands of modern alternative brewing methods to retain fruit-forward complexity.
What is most important?
Answer is they all are. It didn't take a pandemic to learn why speed, freshness, quality and value are all equally important.
Heck no. We worked that out way back in 2007 as the original pioneer of online premium quality fresh roasted coffees to Australian coffee lovers.
We get it, running out of coffee is a nightmare scenario nobody wishes to experience.
With 16 years and almost 1 million successful parcel deliveries under our belts, we know a thing or two about what it takes to run a high performance and high speed coffee supply operation.
To ensure our coffees are crazy fresh, barely hours old when they ship out the door, it requires significant scale and resources working rapidly to roast, pack, label, grind, parcel and ship.
It's an eco-system we have continued to build and optimize for 16 years, measuring our performance in minutes, not hours and certainly not days like some of our competitors.
Nobody can guarantee or predict delivery timeframes, but we can assure you of our commitment to ship fresh roasted coffees that have been prepared to precise quality standards at a competitive price and always processed with a critical sense of urgency.
Not often that I ever review products but in this case it is certainly justified. We love the Sulawesi coffee. No other coffee has ever evoked the same emotions as this Sulawesi. For this we say thank you.
At first I thought why take a risk buying an unknown coffee. When it arrived despite being a bit too fresh my curiousity got the better of me. So I opened the pack, smell was nice but nothing special. As a latte it is insanely good if not great. My wife was hypnotized in a way we have not seen in 20 years, like putting in my hands. What a great coffee, thoroughly enjoyed every cup and look forward to the next delivery now we know the secret.
Have been buying Carlini Coffee since late 2008. Honestly, nothing else compares to the Sulawesi and apparently it is hard to source so folks that means stay away and leave it all to me.
Was not expecting this coffee to blow us away. Yes it is delicious and with a certain X factor we are not able to describe.
We think this is indeed a very special coffee. Suits my wife and I as we drink both black and milk-based espresso.
