This particular washed lot comes from a longstanding relationship between Royal Coffee Importers and the Barokah Cooperative, which has 140 members who cultivate on small family owned plots of land located around Mount Kerinci, the highest volcano in Indonesia. The cooperative works closely with producers to decrease forest encroachment. Their farm management practices create a protective buffer for the Kerinci Seblat national park, which encircles the entire Kerinci valley with unparalleled natural beauty and habitat for the Sumatran Tiger. During the harvest, producers deliver their cherry to the Barokah mill where it is sorted, depulped, fermented, washed and dried gently on raised beds. The dried parchment is delivered to Yudi Putra, which takes great care in managing traceability and preparation for export.
