About the coffee

The Orang Utan Project is committed to the sustainable cultivation of coffee in the rainforest without exploiting it. As the rainforest has shrunk considerably in recent years, the flora and fauna as well as our climate are under massive threat and so this project coffee is particularly very important to us.

The Orang Utan coffee comes from the Gayo Highlands, in Central Aceh, just north of the equator. This coffee is as rare as it is delicate in its flavour profile and both taste great a either as a filter or as an espresso. The diversity of the rainforest provides a special climate that Sumatra needs for its unique Arabica coffees. The outstanding Arabica trees thrive mainly on the steep slopes of the crater, where the growing conditions are optimal due to the adjacent rainforest.

The rainforest is the habitat of many endangered species - including the Sumatran orangutan. The ongoing destruction of tropical rainforests threatens its existence - but also that of the farmers. It is therefore important that smallholders recognise and protect the importance of the rainforest for their livelihood.

The Orang Utan Coffee Growers manage their coffee farms according to the strict Orang Utan guidelines, which are a combination of the Indonesian National Standards for Organic Agriculture SNI and are essentially similar to the Swiss standards for organic farming.

About the farm

The Orang Utan Coffee Project aims at a holistic sustainable approach focusing on social responsibility and the protection of tropical rainforests with their unique biodiversity and their important role in global climate change mitigation: This project exclusively brings together micro farmers who have owned one or two hectares for several generations. The following are the basic rules under which the orangutan farmers farm:

- they do not use agricultural chemicals such as artificial fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides.

- agree not to clear tropical rainforests to expand their farmland.

- agree not to hunt, capture or trade protected animal or plant species.

About the Coffee

Der Orang Utan Kaffee stammt aus den Gayo Highlands, in Central Aceh, knapp nördlich des Äquators. Dieser Kaffee ist so selten wie delikat in seinem Geschmacksprofil und schmeckt sowohl als Filter, wie auch als Espresso großartig geschmacksintensiv. Die Vielfalt des Regenwaldes bietet ein besonderes Klima, das Sumatra für seine einzigartigen Arabica Kaffees braucht.
Die herausragenden Arabica-Bäume gedeihen hauptsächlich an den steilen Hängen des Kraters, wo die Wachstumsbedingungen durch den angrenzenden Regenwald optimal sind.

Der Regenwald ist der Lebensraum von vielen vom Aussterben bedrohten Arten - auch des Sumatra-Orang-Utans. Die fortschreitende Zerstörung tropischer Regenwälder bedroht seine Existenz - aber auch die der Bauern. Es ist daher wichtig, dass die Kleinbauern die Bedeutung des Regenwaldes für ihren Unterhalt anerkennen und schützen.

Die Orang Utan Coffee Growers bewirtschaften ihre Kaffeefarmen gemäß der strengen Orang Utan-Richtlinien, die eine Kombination der indonesischen nationalen Standards für den ökologischen Landbau SNI darstellen und im Wesentlichen den schweizerischen Standards für den ökologischen Landbau ähneln.

About the farm

Das Orang Utan Projekt unterstützt Farmer und den Schutz der Orang Utans und ihres Lebensraums. Das Orang Utan Projekt setzt sich für einen nachhaltigen Anbau von Kaffee im Regenwald ein, ohne diesen auszubeuten. Da der Regenwald besonders in den letzten Jahren stark geschrumpft ist, und Flora und Fauna, aber auch unser Klima massiv bedroht sind, ist uns dieser besonders wichtig.
