This coffee thrives in the rich volcanic soil of the highest active volcano in Southeast Asia, Mt. Kerinci (3,805 meters). Kerinci Seblat National Park is the largest National Park on Sumatra and one of the largest protected areas in all of Southeast Asia. It includes 5,325 square miles of rainforest, volcanoes, mountains, wetlands, and rivers. That's more protected forest than all of Costa Rica and more than 1.5 times the size of Yellowstone. This park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with more tigers there than in all of Nepal, and all of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and China combined, indicating the quality of the forests and the abundance of prey species. Seven million people and ten million hectares of agriculture land rely on water that has its source in the forested mountains of the National Park.
The producers of this coffee are working hard to provide solutions to protect this amazing National Park. The farmers are being trained in sustainable practices and commit to not grow their coffee within the National Park.
