Back Bay Roastery

‘From Our Farm to Your Cup’

Organically Grown Roasted Arabica

Part of the long term business plan to become a self sustaining business was to open a boutique roastery and offer the coffee grown on LLO farm as roasted retail. Back Bay Roastery began in 2016 and is an important part of LLO community. In 2020, our son Wade in the USA, opened Merantau Coffee Roasters; he roasts to order all of the same selections as Back Bay. To order your roasted beans, go to the Shop tab on the home page. Prices are given in rupiah for Indonesia, however in product descriptions, look for the option to use PayPal for all customers outside Indonesia. Choose naturals or full washed   as roasted whole beans. Please follow our instagram page @back_bay_roastery or @wade_merantau_coffee

The Diversity in the coffee industry begins with the many varieties of Arabica grown at origins across the coffee belt. Here on LLO farm in Simalungun, I have developed a variety farm (variety details on this tab’s drop down menu). The cherry we source from local farmers continues to be processed for green bean. Visit the Siamang Forest Coffee tab to review green coffee offerings.

Arabika Panggang Tumbuh Secara Organik

Keanekaragaman dalam industri kopi dimulai dengan banyak varietas Arabika yang tumbuh pada asal di sabuk kopi. Di sini, di pertanian kami di Simalungun, kami telah mengembangkan pertanian beragam. Tujuannya adalah untuk menghasilkan naturals dan dicuci penuh juga proses fermentasi khusus lot mikro dari masing-masing varietas dan menawarkan banyak ini sebagai biji utuh panggang.

Climate Change | How we can make a difference

To do our part here in Simalungun, we decided to protect the fragmented forest that surrounds our coffee farm. This small forest is home to at least 5 species of monkeys and one family of apes, the black gibbon or ‘siamang’. The numerous species of birds, the bees and other ground animals who live here are also protected. Other indigenous animals find their way to our little forest and make their home here. Some of our personal choices:

  • We chose to have shade grown coffee, and replant many of the indigenous trees that had been stripped from the forest when we bought the land. Shade tree plantlets are given to farmers in our collective and to any farmer who requests these shade tree plants.
  • We make our own organic compost from by products of pulping and hulling coffee, also from the farm hygiene practices of raking leaves and cut grasses within the coffee gardens.
  • We do not use pesticide or herbicide.
  • Our home and facilities are run on solar power. Our coffee production equipment runs on a generator.
  • Rain water is cycled through for basic wash functions.

You can make a contribution to maintaining the biodiversity of this small forest and protecting the habitat of the animals (and people) who call it home. Each purchase of roasted coffee you make helps make us a sustainable business. We can’t maintain this forest without your support.

Perubahan Iklim | Bagaimana kita bisa membuat perbedaan

Untuk melakukan bagian kami di Simalungun, kami memutuskan untuk melindungi hutan terfragmentasi yang mengelilingi kebun kopi kami. Hutan kecil ini adalah rumah bagi setidaknya 5 spesies monyet dan satu keluarga kera, siamang hitam atau siamang. Banyak spesies burung, lebah, dan hewan darat lainnya yang tinggal di sini juga dilindungi. Hewan asli lainnya menemukan jalan ke hutan kecil kami dan membuat rumah mereka di sini. Beberapa pilihan pribadi kita:

  • Kami memilih untuk menanam kopi di bawah naungan, dan menanam kembali banyak pohon asli yang telah dilucuti dari hutan ketika kami membeli tanah. Planlet pohon naungan diberikan kepada petani di kolektif kami.
  • Kami membuat kompos organik kami sendiri dari produk sampingan kopi pengupas dan penggiling.
  • Kami tidak menggunakan pestisida atau herbisida.
  • Rumah dan fasilitas kami menggunakan tenaga surya. Peralatan produksi kopi kami menggunakan generator.
  • Air hujan didaur ulang untuk fungsi pencucian dasar.

Anda dapat berkontribusi untuk menjaga keanekaragaman hayati hutan kecil ini dan melindungi habitat hewan (dan manusia) yang menyebutnya rumah. Setiap pembelian kopi panggang yang Anda buat membantu menjadikan kami bisnis yang berkelanjutan. Kami tidak dapat mempertahankan hutan ini tanpa dukungan Anda
