Producer Koerintji Barokah Bersama


This is our second year purchasing coffee from the incredible Kerinci producers, if you remember last years honey process lot we had, this one is going to blow your mind!

This lot has just finished its run on our Roasters Choice subscription, so there isn't much of it left, but if you can grab some whilst we've stock I would super recommend it!
The anaerobic natural processing on this coffee gives it some outstanding fruity funk forward notes, whilst still keeping a really clean finish!
It is such a well balanced coffee not just for filter brewing, we've also tested this out with Cold Brewing and even a mega burst of fruity flavours on espresso!


The 320 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.

With this Anaerobic Natural lot, coffee is first floated and separated by density before being laid on raised beds where workers remove underripe, overripe and damaged cherry. Then, ripe cherry is collected again and sealed in airtight, 20kg plastic bags that are stored in a cool, dry location (with temperatures between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius) for 7 days.

After 7 days, cherry is again laid on raised beds to dry. The beds are located in domes that protect the coffee from rain or harsh sunlight. The parchment will dry here for around 20 to 23 days. When dry, the coffee is milled and sorted by hand.

Farmers receive fair prices for their cherry and have a fixed buyer for their cherries. The coop's profit at the end of the year is either invested in infrastructure to improve quality or is shared with the producers. Farmers also receive technical support and seedlings for shade trees for on and around the farm.

*Our coffee is freshly roasted each Monday and orders are dispatched on Wednesday and Friday with Royal Mail 24. Please allow 1-2 business days for your order to arrive.
