This exquisite Indonesian honey coffee originates from the Kerinci region, on Indonesia’s Sumatra island. The Kerinci Valley is surrounded by Mount Kerinci, the Kerinci Highlands and the lush forests of Kerinci Seblat National Park. This natural paradise, on the slopes of Indonesia's largest volcano, also produces some of Asia's most highly prized coffee.
The specialty coffee boom in Indonesia, has seen an increase in farmers experimenting with producing quality coffees. A group of curious coffee farmers in 2017 met with producers in the Solok region and established the Radjo Project with the aim of transferring their specialty farming techniques and opening up a partnership for knowledge.
The year 2018 marks the first full year of harvest for Kerinci farmers after calibrating coffee through the successful Radio Project. This was also the year that Sumatra Kerinci arabica coffee farmers gained respect in the Indonesian coffee scene by winning a yearly domestic coffee competition with the honey and washed coffees they produced.
