Background Details

JAVA FTO RFA KAYUMAS SURYA ABADI GRAINPRO is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Surya Abadi Kayumas cooperative, which operates around the village of Kayumas on the island of Java, Indonesia. This coffee was cultivated by 66 small producers whose average farm size is around 5 acres. This example of organic coffee production on small plots is atypical in the region, which is dominated by large government run coffee estates established by the Dutch in the 18th century. The coffee's hallmark Indonesian profile is the product of wet-hulling, a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed.
