Farmers Workshop - Strengthen the Knowledge
To update ourselves on coffee knowledge and share best practices on plant caring, we participated in a Farmer´s workshop during one of our stays in Indonesia, September 2019.
When asking the farmers, why do they grow coffee with the best possible quality, Aku answered: "...to get the best possible price! So I can pay for my daughters´ education."- A straight forward, but also very simple and clear answer. At ImpactBerry we can absolutely relate, when it comes to taking care of family and learning.
Together we discussed the importance of taking care of the planet and its inhabitants - coffee is actually a leaver for this endeavour.
More interesting learnings for us were, to get a better understanding of traditional Indonesian coffee processing methods, trimming techniques of the plants and special knowledge about Robusta varieties.
