Sorry! This product is temporarily unavailable. Please submit your email, and we will notify you when it’s back in stock.

Sweet flavors of golden raisin, balanced with the classic herbaceousness of Indonesian coffee, meet you at your first sip. Notes of fresh thyme paired with a citrus component reminiscent of lemongrass complete the cup.

Those who enjoyed the previous year’s Boana will appreciate Ribang Gayo's earthy and vibrant acidity.

    A fan favorite making its return, Ribang Gayo is both tart and clean and our first ever purchase from Indonesia. Asman Arianto is originally from Palembang, South Sumatra but has lived and worked in Aceh Tengah since 1998. He found his interest in coffee production while living here, which caused him to shift to collecting cherries and processing coffees. He experimented with fully-washed, honey-process, and natural on his farm, familiarizing himself with various processing methods.

    Asman decided he wanted to build a cooperative to bring together coffee farmers and find a market for these unique Asian-Pacific coffees. In 2018, he formed the Ribang Gayo Musara Cooperative intending to offer competitive prices to help farmers reinvest in their farms and their families. The cooperative currently has over 350 members who deliver cherries to their processing facility in Pantan Musara.

    The benefits for cooperative members are threefold. First, they get higher prices for their cherries when they sell to the cooperative. Second, as cooperative members, they receive end-of-season “second payment” premiums that share a portion of profits earned for higher-quality lots. In 2019, that premium was 500 Rupiah per kilogram. Finally, Ribang Gayo Musara provides training and outreach for farmers in everything from cultivation to processing.
