Hello Louise. In brief finding coffee in Indonesia is not hard. Finding quality coffee is extremely difficult. I have been doing it for 11 years and I am still learning something everytime I go out into the field. I guess "learning" needs to be defined... the technical side of coffee cultivation (growing, harvesting, crop management, organic pest control techniques, sorting, drying and humidity control, stock/warehouse management etc) is not easy. As mentioned in another post I think you need to ask yourself what you are looking to do with this knowledge. If you want to develop your set of skills for a future in the coffee business you need to approach some independents, get an apprenticeship and be taught about coffee from the ground up.

If it is for just a personal interest- then coffee is grown just about everywhere in Indonesia- arabica and robusta can be found 1 hour out of Jakarta quite easily.
Hi Alun,

Im still newbie in coffee industry and I find it very interesting about coffee. Yet now Im still learning about coffee from the text book, video, etc but I can't find it by see it by myself. What I want to learn is about coffee itself: how to grow it, harvesting,processing, technic of blending, roasting, until made a good cup of coffee. It is not only a simple curiosity because I wanna be a serious coffee expert that one day can support the local coffee farm ( coz I feel so pity that Indonesian people can't be an expert otherwise we have many of great coffee ) if there is any kind of information or maybe you can help me to learn about what I look for, it will be really helpfull for me... :)

Send me a copy of your cv/resume. You can find my email on our website or you could send it the BX mail system. I am always on the look out for people who might fit into our admittedly kiwi style of coffee company. I assume you have read through our website?
