Welcoming a coffee that is both tart and clean and our first ever purchase from Indonesia: Ribang Gayo. 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, and natural on his farm, familiarizing himself with various processing methods.
He decided he wanted to build a cooperative to bring together coffee farmers and find a market for these coffees. In 2018, Asman formed the Ribang Gayo Musara Cooperative. His goal is to offer competitive prices that can help farmers reinvest in their farms and their families. The cooperative currently has over 350 members who deliver cherry to their processing facility in Pantan Musara.
The benefits for cooperative members are threefold. First, they get higher prices for their cherry 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, the cooperative provides training and outreach for farmers in everything from cultivation to processing.
