We source certified organic coffee from a series of family farms in Northern Sumatra. In Sumatra, there are several smaller 2 acre farms spread out over a large territory. To best serve the farmers and communities in this region, we work directly with a local foundation, Yayasan Bani Adam Permata Haiti. This foundation serves to support the broader coffee growing community represented by the cooperative, PT Indo Cafco.
Partnering with other coffee roasters, we were able to support the Pembangunan orphanage, located in the Aceh Highlands of Northern Sumatra. Civil war and the horrific 2004 Tsunami left many children without parents and support of the orphanage was able to directly benefit the children who needed the help most. The orphanage, a 1000 sq. foot run down building, housed 25 children. Together, we donated the funds that helped with the rebuilding of the orphanage and, most recently, we donated school uniforms and supplies. Our goal is to continue to assist farmers and their families in projects that will nurture both our sourcing relationship and serve to benefit their communities for future generations.
