your coffee –
The Orang Utan Coffee project takes responsibility for a transparent, fair and sustainable coffee production – from the crop to the roaster, the protection of orangutans and their rainforest habitat and a sustainable livelihood of a growing community of presently over 350 smallholder farmers in the Gayo Highlands of northern Sumatra, Indonesia.
The project combines species and habitat conservation with sustainable coffee production and corporate social responsibility. The most important partners are the approx. 350 smallholder farmers, who produce consistent high-quality coffee in compliance with EU Organic standards and are committed to protect the rainforest and its wildlife.
How It Works
The project empowers the farmers to produce certified organic coffee. This long-term process ensures traceability, as well as social and ecological sustainability. With the support from coffee experts, post-harvest processes and infrastructures are continually improved.
A premium of 50 cents per kg of exported green bean goes to the farmer for his extra efforts in complying with organic and nature conservation standards. An equal premium goes to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme SOCP, a joint initiative of the Indonesian NGO YEL and Swiss foundation PanEco in partnership with the Indonesian government.
