Welcome to the first instalment of our Introducing spotlight. Here we aim to showcase coffee producing countries that you may not have tried before; as well as exceptional coffees from countries you likely would have tried coffee from.
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.This trio is a exploration of how exceptional Indonesian coffees are as well as a cup by cup indicator of how various processing methods impact the final cup. Here you can try washed, honey and natural processing methods of the same coffees, grown by the same cooperative.
