The 250 members of the Koerintji Barokah Bersama Cooperative live and farm on a plateau that sits at the foot of Mount Kerinci on the island of Sumatra. Mount Kerinci is one of the many volcanoes in the Pacific Ring of Fire, a 40,000-kilometer horseshoe-shaped series of 452 volcanoes that are part of an almost constant dance of eruptions and plate movements. Mount Kerinci’s historic eruptions have assured that the surrounding area is lush and verdant thanks to the deep supply of fertile volcanic soil.
The cooperative is managed by Tryiono, who leads members in processing and roasting their own coffee. They have a fully outfitted roasting facility, including a cupping lab, next to the dry mill.

Coffee is sold as whole bean in order to preserve its volatile aromatics (aroma). Our coffee goes through an extensive farming, picking, processing, roasting and evaluation process to ensure that it can be served in Cairo in the best form it can be. Ground to serve is the best way to enjoy your coffee!
