Sustainable direct sourcing of Arabica and Robusta coffee produced with climate change adaptation and mitigation practices.

Our commitment is to provide a sustainable direct supply [sourcing] of Arabica coffee and Robusta coffee from Sulawesi island, Indonesia. The area is well-known for its specialty coffee like Toraja, Kalosi, Mamasa, and Bawakaraeng. However, climate change impacts and aging crops have reduced coffee production significantly. A significant decrease is also found in farmers' willingness to grow coffee and maintain their existing crops. This commitment is made for recurring coffee the major source of livelihood.
