Description: This naturally processed lot comes from the Koerintji Barokah Bersama Cooperative. The coop is taking steps to diversify their offerings, and set them apart from other Indonesian producers by processing naturals, something not popular in Sumatra. Anytime you have someone in coffee trying something new, you run the risk of them being different, but also, not performing at a high level — that is NOT the case with Kerinci Natural. The 320 members who deliver coffee to this coop have produced something to be proud of with this juicy, sweet natural. 

For this natural lot, coffee cherries are sorted before being laid out to dry on raised beds, under domes to protect from rain. The coffee is continuously turned to ensure even drying, and once dry, it’s milled and finally sorted by hand for that *chefs kiss* next level cup quality.

The growing region is on the island of Sumatra, at the foot of Mount Kerinci, a volcano in the Pacific Ring of Fire, where the soil is super nutritious for coffee trees. It’s here that Triyono manages operations at the coop, helping members process, roast, and cup their own coffee.

Most farmers in Sumatra are farming a small area, 0.5 to 2.5 hectares (or about 1 to 6.5 acres). Coffee is the main cash crop for coop members, but many intercrop alongside fruits and vegetables. Our exporting partner for this one organized a donation of avocado trees for every bag purchased of this coffee. So, not because we think it is a good flavor pairing, but we suggest having this one alongside a nice avocado toast, or avocado smoothie… people do that, right?

Customer Reviews

Based on 2 reviews

this one surprised me, it's weirdly like a dry process yirgacheffe if you amped up the chocolate a lot and reduced the acidity.

it's a really unexpected flavor profile with a thick body and big dark chocolate flavor, even with it only roasted to barely city+. lots of sweetness and almost no wild or fermenty notes, the berry seems to be there but is relatively restrained compared to a lot of berry-y naturals

Great coffee

Fantastic coffee. I could taste all of the flavors in the description.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
