Koerintji Barokah Bersama Co-Op lives and farm on a plateau that sits at the foot of Mt. Kerinci. The cooperative is managed by Triyono, who leads the 320 members in processing and oversee the activities on and around nine UPH (Unit Pengolahan Hasil) stations owned by the cooperative.
UPH is a collection center where coffee cherries are bought and processed before moving it to the central mill. Essentially, a UPH functions as a small washing station. Each UPH is located in a different area and receives cherries from different farmer groups.
During the harvest season, coffee is handpicked. Usually, most labor is supplied by the nearest family.
Tryiono and his team are expanding Indonesia’s coffee processing traditions.
With this Anaerobic Honey lot, coffee is first floated and separated by density before being laid on raised beds where workers remove underripes, overripes and damaged cherry. Then, ripe cherry is collected again and sealed in airtight, 20kg plastic bags that are stored in a cool, dry location (with temperatures between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius) for 7 days.
After 7 days, cherry is pulped and then laid again on raised beds to dry. The beds are located in domes that protect the coffee from rain or harsh sunlight. The parchment will dry here for around 20 to 23 days. When dry, the coffee is milled and sorted by hand.
