Our Coffee Story

Organically Grown and Ethically Sourced

Lisa & Leo’s Organic® Coffee is a family owned and operated company. We dedicated our efforts in Simalungun, North Sumatra and started an organic coffee farm, complimented by a wet mill facility and an ECO Tourism Farm Stay.  All of our Arabicas were started from seed and are grown organically in higher elevations of 1400 to 1500+MASL. All of the cherry we source is grown in our home region of Simalungun. Different processing methods, including dry natural, anaerobic & aerobic fermentation, fully washed and double soak washed are used to develop the best flavor profiles from our coffees. Check the Huta Raja Collective/Coffee Processing tab for more information.

We proudly supply small roasters all across Indonesia who have pioneered the specialty coffee movement and are moving it forward to the benefit of all in the supply chain. Visit our Green Coffee button for a listing of Domestic and International offerings.

More than Green Coffee Producers

From the Beginning To achieve a sustainable business model that is fair to everyone in our supply chain, Farm Adoption Programs were developed and implemented with a bottom up approach. Families expressing a desire to partner with L&L Organic and transition into fully organic farm practices are where we begin. Over the years, families become independent from the program. This is the long term goal for every family and farm. Read more about this on our Farm Adoption Partnerships page.

In 2016 we started Eco Brunch Tours and Eco Farm Stays on our Simalungun farm. Designed to provide a pampered experience in the remote,  yet stunningly beautiful Sumatra Highlands. Affordable and Unforgettable. See more on our Eco Tourism Page.

Farmers Market Day, held the last Sunday of each month, offers farmers families a chance to socialize with the roasters and cafe’ owners that serve the Arabica they grow. Open to the public from 2-5pm that day; find us on google maps and come spend the afternoon enjoying a great cup of coffee at the source.

In 2016 we started Back Bay Roasters, a boutique roastery offering different Arabicas personally grown organically and processed on our farm. Available as single bag or bulk orders. Visit our Roasted Coffee button for ordering information and current available selections.

In 2017 we completed the Wet Mill Facility and expanded the outreach programs to more local farm families and in turn are providing a higher quality product through greater management of raw materials purchased as cherry at the farm level.

In 2017 Consulting Services for New Arabica Farm Start Ups and/or New Coffee Processing Facility Start Ups began. Everything from Site Selection, Site Preparation, Seeds or Seedlings, Nursery Oversite, Facility Design, Fit Out and Project Management. Training Services for Equipment Operation.

In 2018 we added Coffee Processing Educational Courses for coffee professionals throughout the coffee industry who want to expand their knowledge of the technical side of processing from cherry to green bean. See more on our Education Page for information and registration. Held Monthly.

In 2019 we became a CQI Certified Facility and offered the first CQI Level 2 Q Processing Course in Indonesia. We have a second QP Level 2 Course set for December 1-7. Visit our Education page for more information on Registration. ( CQI is the Coffee Quality Institute, Global)

Q Arabica Graders Since 2012 The international coffee community recognizes the Coffee Quality Institute License as qualification for grading coffee from around the world. In our pursuit of better coffee quality, we have both earned this license. These cupping skills set forth by the Specialty Coffee Association of America, SCAA, are used to determine if a coffee meets the Specialty Coffee standard for market pricing.

Quality Processing Professional 2019 The industry standard for processing specialty coffee is tough. To maintain our standing as Specialty Coffee Producers, we successfully completed the training and exams and now offer this Course as part of our Education curriculum. Visit our Education page for Course information and registration.
