Farm Adoption Partnerships

One Goal | Farmer to Roaster

Relationship Coffee. An idea whose time has come. Figuring out how to implement it into a working model that is sustainable for the key people in the relationship is the tricky part.
Opportunities are all around us to develop relationships in the coffee industry. On the producer side, L&L Organic decided to develop a program that could:
1. Have an immediate and long term environmental and economic impact in Simalungun for producers.
2. Create a transparent Relationship Coffee from farmer to roaster that allows the cost of the final coffee to include funds for necessary crop maintenance.
3. Involve the producer in the price negotiations for their crop.
4. Be organic, sustainable and grow into a crop maintenance schedule the producer manages independently of L&L Organic.
5. Produce Specialty Grade coffees from these farms for local sales within the blossoming Specialty Coffee culture in Indonesia.

We have successfully replicated our Farm Adoption Program with 4 single family farms and one farmer collective. Our market partners are 80% domestic; groundbreaking roasters, across the Indonesia archipelago.
