Konang Springs Honey

Before he began farming coffee, Pak attended Brawijaya University in the city of Malang, East Java, where he studied agriculture, farming techniques and farm management, as well as business. He then attended the IPB (Institut Pertanian Bogor) / Bogor Farming Institute where he underwent more intensive training in coffee farming.

Initially, Pak was met with little success when he tried to market coffee from Argopuro to local markets; coffee prices were very low at the time, so local farmers in Argopuro chose to plant tobacco or corn instead. Undeterred and determined, Pak explored the markets of bigger cities like Jakarta, where he found roasteries and coffee shops that recognized the potential of coffee from Argopuro and were willing to pay higher prices.

Proper natural processing is very challenging given the extreme level of humidity in the region; it takes an astounding amount of effort and skill to ensure consistency and quality through strict quality controls. The end result, however, is an incredibly expressive, juicy, floral yet clean profile.

This coffee was dried on raised beds for 15-16 days and stirred once every hour before being patio dried for an additional 8-10 days.

After being sorted, cherries are depulped with mucilage still intact. The coffee is then dried on raised beds for 15 days and stirred once every hour before being patio dried for an additional 5 days.

Mt. Ijen Washed

Pak Echwan has a big vision for his village and coffee farmer community. Being one of the head coffee farmers in his region, Pak took the initiative to dramatically improve the quality of his community’s coffee and began educating farmers on proper farming techniques and agricultural best practices. The villagers quickly took to Pak’s process improvements, and with each year, Pak continues to implement better quality control protocols, as well as investing in better equipment and storage as a result from the increased sales.  

Bondowso coffee is grown at an altitude of around 1100-1200 masl, and is a mix of Arabica USDA 762 (Majority), Lini S795, S288, and Cobra. Harvest season starts around June to August.

In this labor intensive, special anaerobic process, cherries are fermented in a low-oxygen environment in sealed drums for 7 days. Afterward, the cherries are dried on raised beds for 15 days and are stirred once every hour. Finally, cherries are patio dried for an additional 10 days.

This coffee is absolutely bursting with tropical fruit flavors—sipping this coffee is almost like taking a trip to Indonesia itself! The anaerobic process truly lends a uniquely complex profile unlike any other.

The farmers at Pokmas Walida have taken great care with their natural processing and it shows in the cup. The profile is strikingly clean and full heady, dark fruit flavors shine through. It's more balanced than its anaerobic counterpart, with deep chocolate notes as a backbone.

In this unique “hydro honey” process, cherries are sorted and dried on raised beds for 4-5 days, just as they would during a natural process. After drying, cherries are then soaked in water for 24 hours to rehydrate. After rehydration, cherries are depulped and dried on raised beds for 12-15 days, just as they would during a normal honey process.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Java Reborn: Traceable, Transparent, High-Quality

Ivan Hartanto, Kenny Soewando and Kevin Soewondo form the pioneering team at Belift Green Beans. Together, the three are on a mission to "revive Indonesian coffee in the international market"—and we couldn't be more thrilled to partner with them to source these exceptional coffees from Java. We're excited to offer outstanding coffees from two farming communities in two regions in East Java: the Pokmas Walida Cooperative in Argopuro and the Echwan Suyitno farm in Bondowoso.

Though Indonesian coffees are a staple offering and flavor profile in the coffee industry, it has been historically difficult to implement traceability systems in many regions. Because we place utmost importance on transparent, traceable sourcing, bringing in coffees from Indonesia have always been a steep challenge. Our first time successfully sourcing from Indonesia was in Sumatra in 2017; ever since then, we've been looking for the right opportunity to once again offer high-quality, traceable Indonesian coffees.

Redefining Indonesian Specialty Coffee

Most coffee farmers in Indonesia grow a very small amount of coffee alongside crops like tomatoes, chili peppers, and ginger. The combined remoteness of their farms and fragmented production system have made it very difficult to trace Indonesian coffee. The team at Belift, however, are working directly with the farming communities in Argopuro and Bondowoso and are hands-on with every step of production, from seed to processing to export.
