Sulawesi is one of the larger and most populous Indonesia Islands. It is situated east of Borneo, west of Maluka Island, and south of Mindanao and the Sula Archipelago.

The human history of Sulawesi is very ancient. Some stone tools of early humans found there are over 200,000 years old, and it is the location of some of the earliest cave art in the world. The modern people of Sulawesi date back to around 2,000 B.C. Among these people is the Seafaring Bugis. The Bugis were traders as well as raiders and are the possible source for the term “Boogie Man”. The first Europeans to visit Sulawesi were Portuguese sailors and explorers in 1523. The Dutch arrived in 1650 and began a long period of colonization. During World War II the Japanese occupied Sulawesi, and in 1950, the island joined the Republic of Indonesia.

Coffee cultivation on Sulawesi began with the Dutch. Traditionally, and to this day, Sulawesi coffees are grown on small farms. They are wet-hull processed like other Indonesian coffees. This process determines the flavors of the coffee. The result is low acidity, full body, and earthy notes.
