In the forested mountains of Java, farmers like Pipin participate in a government preservation program leasing biodiverse-rich land for coffee cultivation, aiming to balance habitat conservation with specialty coffee production. However, frustrations arise from the traditional purchasing system, which limits direct relationships and decreases farmer income. Sucafina's project in the area focuses on enhancing coffee quality through improved fermentation techniques and farmer education, fostering a sustainable coffee community amidst Java's stunning landscapes.

The coffee variety grown, Linea S or Lini S-795, originates from India and offers resistance to leaf rust alongside good cup quality. While it was widely distributed by the Indonesian Coffee and Cocoa Research Institute, newer Catimor-derived types are gaining popularity due to their denser seeds, compact structure, and higher yields, though Linea S remains prevalent in regions like Flores and Sulawesi.

In this dynamic coffee landscape, initiatives like Sucafina's and our partnership offer hope for increased farmer prosperity and environmental stewardship, emphasizing the importance of direct engagement and sustainable practices for the future of Java's coffee industry.
