Indonesia is an incredibly diverse and expansive country. Each coffee growing region has their own unique system of production and trade, with local varieties, climate, and terroir contributing to the distinct profiles. The most well-known regions for specialty coffee are Aceh, North Sumatra, South Sulawesi, West Java, Bali, and Flores.

On average, farms are between 1-5 hectares and often grow vegetables, fruits, and spices alongside coffee plants. Many of these farms are in remote, difficult to access regions. A vast network of collectors, processors and traders connect the farmer to the exporter. There are hundreds of active exporters, mainly located in Medan. Surabaya in East Java is another hub for export (generally for coffees from Java and further east), while smaller volumes are exported from Jakarta and Makassar (Sulawesi).

This coffee contributes to a Farmgate project.

The Farmgate Initiative offers roasters a way to invest directly in the supply chains that are important to them, all while providing clear sustainability reporting data. By purchasing Farmgate coffees, roasters can be a part of long-term projects that have a lasting impact on the communities that produce their coffee.

The Farmgate Initiative is geared towards roasters looking to make an impact with their coffee purchases. The impact each roaster makes by purchasing The Farmgate Initiative coffees is aggregated and funneled toward a project that is relevant to the local community it aims to serve. Since every purchase contributes to funding the project, even the smallest purchase can make a big impact and enhance sustainability in direct supply chains. Roasters also have the opportunity to get more deeply involved in the supply chain by committing additional funds to the ongoing work with farmers.

The 320 members of the Koerintji Barokah Bersama Cooperative live and farm on a plateau that sits at the foot of Mount Kerinci on the island of Sumatra. Mount Kerinci is one of the many volcanoes in the Pacific Ring of Fire, a 40,000-kilometer horseshoe-shaped series of 452 volcanoes that are part of an almost constant dance of eruptions and plate movements. Mount Kerinci’s historic eruptions have assured that the surrounding area is lush and verdant with a deep supply of fertile volcanic soil.

The cooperative is managed by Triyono, who leads members in processing and roasting their own coffees. They have a fully outfitted roasting facility, including a cupping lab, next to the dry mill.
