Coffee Background

With Indonesian coffees, half the battle is overcoming logistical challenges like rugged roads and unpredictable torrents of rain. Thankfully, Royal can count on Yudi Putra who owns and operates a family owned export company that collaborates with farmers to overcome these challenges to swiftly bring the coffee to the international market, ensuring greater earnings from direct trade relationships. This particular lot comes from a longstanding relationship with a cooperative called Koperasi ALKO, which has 476 members who cultivate on small family owned plots of land located around Mount Kerinci, the highest volcano in Indonesia. The cooperative works closely with producers to decrease forest encroachment. Their farm management practices create a protective buffer for the Kerinci Seblat national park, which encircles the entire Kerinci valley with unparalleled natural beauty and habitat for the Sumatran Tiger. During the harvest, producers deliver their cherry to the Koperasi mill where it is sorted and meticulously dried on raised beds. The dried coffee is delivered to Yudi Putra, which takes great care in managing traceability and preparation for export.
