In Indonesia, coffee is grown mainly on small farms with an area of 1 to 2 hectares. The main coffee producing regions are Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, Flores and Bali. Both Arabica and Robusta are grown in the country. The main varieties of arabica: typica and derivatives, catimor (local nameteammate), ateng, USDA, S795. In Java, due to its colonial history, quite a lot of coffee is grown on large farms. Most of the plantations are located in the eastern part of the island. Growth height: 900 - 1800 meters above sea level. Harvesting: May - November. The most famous farms are Blawan, Jambit, Kayumas and Pankur.
Flores coffee is grown in two regions - Ngada and Manggarai. Small farms organized into local “farms” cultivate varieties such as Typica, Catimore and Catuai on volcanic soil.
The Ngada and Manggarai areas are 90 percent covered by Arabica plantations, which vary from 1,300 to 1,700 meters above sea level. The volcanic soil is drained by the roots of natural plantings. The farms themselves are surrounded by jungle, and the trees grow under the shade of trees such as Eritina, Albesia, Laucauna.
The harvest period starts in May. Berry picking method - manual picking (selective picking). After that, the berries are depulped, then placed in fermentation containers for 24-36 hours. The berries are dried on patios or bamboo mats until 35% moisture remains in the patch. During the drying process, the berries are constantly mixed. This method is called hulled. The berries peel off until most of the parchment shell has fallen off, and 12.5% moisture remains in the grains. After the grains are transferred to storage, they are sorted by quality (grading).
