This coffee hails from the Kerinci Highlands and the lush forests of Kerinci Seblat National Park. The park’s 5,235 square miles of rainforest, volcanoes, mountains, wetlands and rivers are a boon to agriculture in the area, which 7 million people rely on.
This coffee is processed in partnership with AgroTropic which partners with local farmers to promote sustainability, transparent pricing, as well as providing farmers with opportunities to grow better coffee year over year. This coffee is fully traceable to the individual farmer who grew it!
We have found this coffee really shines as it approaches and just begins second crack—darker than most of our beans. However, this in no way takes away from the full potential of this bean. Roaster Alex is not a fan of darker roasted coffees—but this Indonesia changed his mind!
