Indonesia is an archipelago just off the mainland of SouthEast Asia. Its islands spread across 1/8th of the world’s circumference. The Aceh province of the island of Sumatra, is the westernmost province of the country, and is near Thailand and Malaysia. Indonesian culture is diverse, blending more than 300 ethnic groups, over 600 languages, and most major world religions. The Indonesian national motto is “Bhinneka tunggal ika,” which means “unity in diversity.”
The Dutch brought coffee to Indonesia in 1696, and has been cultivated there, ever since. Coffee has played an important part in the development of Indonesia, and the country was fourth in the world for coffee production in 2019. There are more than 20 varieties of arabica coffee currently being grown in Indonesia, but the bulk of exported Indonesian coffee is robusta. Most of the coffee is grown on small farms, some of which are certified organic by the international market.
The Fairtrade coffee farmers of Koperasi Baitul Qiradh Baburrayyan (KBQB), located in Takengon and Bener Meriah, founded their coffee business in 1995. Comprising 106 villages across two districts, the cooperative and all its facilities are owned by the 7,824 farmer members. The farmers of KBQB understand that there are many factors that contribute to a delicious cup of coffee, but they have learned through experience that it all begins with the earth that supports their coffee bushes.
