Java Preanger is sourced from family-owned farms located in the Pangalengan district, Bandung Regency on the island of Java, Indonesia. Wildan Mustofa and Atieq Mustikaningtyas, a husband and wife team, started cultivating coffee in 2011 as a means of erosion control and soil conservation on the steep terrain near where they were growing vegetables, seed potato, and tea. They also encouraged their neighbors who now also grow coffee on 1 to 2 hectare plots. Their collective coffee and shade trees, such as eucalyptus and pine, have very good foliage and root systems that increases water holding capacity, protecting the Bandung highland from erosion. Wildan and Atieq have used coffee revenue to purchase land and provide construction funds for a local school that gives children nearer access to education through high school.
