Coffee's Role in Sulawesi
Originally names Celebes, coffee was introduced to the Indonesian island of Sulawesi in 1750 by the Dutch East India Company and remained under Dutch control until World War II. Today, Indonesia ranks as the fourth largest coffee producer in the world. While a smaller percentage of coffee production comes from Sulawesi than Sumatra, the coffee from Sulawesi is distinct and highly sought after. Close to 90% of the coffee production in Sulawesi is produced by farmers with average farm size of 1 hectare or less, making it an important economic activity for the region.
