Coffee Story:

The Kimel Plantation was first established in 1974 by an Australian, Bobby Gibbs. It is now owned by traditional landowners, consisting mostly of the Opais tribe. This estate has a permanent workforce of over 400 people, all of which are provided with on site housing. The estate also provides schooling for the children and medical facilities for their employees and families. Clean running water has also been made available to the estate workers by way of a community project, financed by way of the relationship coffee model.

The Estate is located on the Kimel River. This fine Arabica coffee is shade grown, with the protection of trees such as Albizias and Gravilleas. The plantation has access to excellent, clean water for the processing of coffee. Clean water being a main contributing factor, along with dedicated farm management to continually produce quality tasting coffees.

The implementation of ecological friendly policies is also followed through with here at the Kimel Plantation. The composted coffee cherry pulp is returned to the crop fields for organic fertilizer. And the recycling of water used during the wet processing is an important concept also being practiced for clean water conservation efforts at the farm and human level.

The roast level for this coffee is best brought out light/medium and pairs deliciously with any savory item. Enjoy this fresh new offer from Indonesia.
