Kirinchi is an area south west in Sumatra where we think there is great potential. There is a few cooperatives there. We started this project in cooperation with a local small roaster in Bandung in Java, called David Irawan, that really loves to engage with the producers and work on quality preparation together with the farmers. This is on a very small scale, and it’s not David's main business. But we also realised that if we wanted to do a different process we needed help on the ground, and this was a trial. The outcome has been great. We only ended up with naturals this year, but we will have a broader range next year.
We got to know Kayo Aro via Nordic Approach. Nordic Approach is a sourcing company focusing solely on high quality green coffees. We do the groundwork to identify, improve, select, and import the best coffees from the most interesting origins. Every coffee they buy or forward to a client is selected based on the cup profile. They believe transparency through the chain and premiums going back to the producers is the only way to achieve a sustainable quality coffee production. Our cooperation with Nordic started on 2016 and all of our coffees are based on their quality of transparency.
