Our direct trade program with Indonesian coffee producers opens up the opportunity to source the finest gem from local terroir. Back then, we were searching for fruity, clean, and well-balanced natural Indonesian coffee. It was such a challenge since Indonesia is located in a tropical climate region, which makes it more difficult to produce natural-process coffee.

Luckily, we met a young coffee producer from Kerinci, Pak Aziz, who manages the small coffee cooperative Rukun Saudara Tani. Located at the foothills of Mount Kerinci, most smallholder farmers grow arabica coffee on fertile soil, which gives Kerinci such a unique flavour to enjoy. Pak Aziz bought and processed all the cherries from nearby smallholder farmers and used different types of processing methods, such as natural, lactic, and anaerobic.

In the last few years, Pak Aziz has begun working on specific honey anaerobic processing methods that showcase the impact of producers on coffee quality. Selected pulped red cherry went through six days of honey anaerobic fermentation and dried on a raised bed for another 2–3 weeks. Even with long fermentation, this coffee surprisingly produces an outstanding, clean cup flavour. We enjoyed pointed flavours with high flavour clarity, such as fruit jam, mango, concord grape, red wine, and dark chocolate. It is such a big achievement for Indonesian coffee producers to be able to produce top-tier quality coffee that meets international standards


 

The Producer

Sumatra is a blessed land, growing one of the finest arabicas in Southern Asia. What makes it even more interesting is the scale of coffee production that covers the northern and southern parts of Sumatra Island. There is a particular coffee growing region that really attracts us as coffee buyers, which often gives us the perception that coffee quality is close to Panama coffee. This tasting experience led us to buy coffee directly from Kerinci, Jambi, and West Sumatra.

Rukun Saudara Tani, established by Abdul Aziz Thohari, is no longer a stranger in the local or international specialty coffee scene. Operating at the foothills of Mount Kerinici, Rukun Saudara Tani is a small cooperative processing coffee cherries that come from smallholder farmers around Mount Kerinci. Pak Aziz is mainly responsible for monitoring coffee processing, farm management, and quality control checks.

After years of dedication, Pak Aziz finally landed his first achievement by winning the Cup of Excellence COE competition, first held in Indonesia in 2022, with lactic natural process coffee. This achievement continues with winning first place in the KKSI (local version of COE) competition in the fully washed coffee category with anaerobic washed coffee. After 4 years of working together, we are happy to keep offering the finest coffee produced by Rukun Saudara Tani.
