Kamala was cultivated by a group of farmers in the Batukaang area who came together to make coffee growing profitable for themselves and their families. They worked together to improve picking techniques and processing, and over the years have become one of the most innovative groups in terms of fermentation techniques.
They have partnered with Catur Coffee Co, who are committed to being agents of change in the Indonesian coffee industry. They are developing techniques to raise quality and ensure consistency, allowing growers the appropriate recognition and remuneration for their work. They are experimenting with yeasts cultured from land where they will be used, which are added to the coffee cherries before fermentation. They help guide the fermentation and thus ensure the quality and its specific flavor profile.
Together they created Kamala. The result: a fruity coffee, with a boozy taste and citrus. The best part? Forward, our import partner, has decaffeinated the beans of this funky coffee, allowing us to offer you a decaf that is completely out of the ordinary.
