The Story

Small farmers in Sumatra tend to grow a variety of crops in addition to coffee, on plots of land smaller than 3 hectares. Co-op washing stations and mills will buy cherry from the producers and blend it before processing in the traditional wet-hulled style, which can lead to more uniform cup quality than coffee bought in parchment by collectors. Makmur Jaya Mandiri is a cooperative organization that aims to get producers higher prices for their coffee, and provides farmers with various services including milling, storage, and transportation of the beans for export.
