The Scientist

Indonesia's specialty coffee growers scene showed rapid growth for the last 5 years. Driven by young and passionate coffee growers, the local coffee industry experiences massive movement in terms of coffee growing and processing. The young generation is getting more interested in exploring the potential of Indonesian coffee through countless experimental processes. For coffee processors like Pak Aziz, he began working with lactic fermentation to explore coffee potential through usage of microbes in fermentation.

Natural is hardest processing to master when it comes to tropical climate. Pak Aziz pushing natural process further by adding lactic acid into natural anaerobic fermentation. It introduced certain bacteria strain that create such a sweeter flavour with complex tropical fruits notes and progressive taste profile. This particular lot went through 72 hours of natural anaerobic fermentation before drying process for another 2-3 weeks.

Coffee is such a unique agricultural product, and every harvest delivers a different coffee flavour spectrum. The latest harvest has such complex berries as black cherry and ripe cherry. The coffee also has a unique sweetness that leaves the impression of strawberry candy sweetness and watermelon syrup. The natural process gives a good progressive taste profile and an interesting guava and cola flavour as it cools down. Kerinci Nana Lactic never disappoints and has consistently performed on every harvest.


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.
