General Description: The central Indonesian island of Bali has a largely volcanic terrain with several mountains peaking over 3,000 meters in elevation. The island’s volcanic landscape contributes to its excellent fertility, and its towering mountain ranges encourage the high rainfall that supports a highly productive agricultural sector. The Kintamani highlands sit atop a large volcanic plateau between 3,600 – 4,800 feet in altitude. Coffee tree varieties include a high percentage of Bourbon and Typica, along with essential shade trees such as Erythrina, Albizia, Tangerine and Orange. The use of pesticides is prohibited on Bali and all fertilizers are 100% organic, usually cow or pig manure produced on each individual farm. Learn more…

General Description: The Permata Gayo cooperative was formed in 2006 by 50 coffee farmers throughout the Aceh region of Sumatra. The purpose was to focus on organic farming, which would not only benefit the well-being of their communities, but also raise valuable premiums to rebuild areas damaged by civil war and natural disasters. In 2007, the cooperative earned organic certification from the USDA and in 2008 became Fairtrade certified. Today, Permata Gayo has over 2,500 members and uses Fair Trade premiums to purchase agricultural tools and invest in soil conservation. Learn more…
