The coffee passion at Itende JKT Estate reverberates in ways both large and small. Here, youth aged 18–22 learn coffee cultivation through a hands-on, voluntary government program. These opportunities shape lives, empowering a young generation to produce extraordinary coffee. And by participating in the full range of day-to-day operations, they gain an understanding that reaches beyond farming to various facets of life—management, discipline and the persistence necessary to keep a business running smoothly.
Whether the young farmers go on to hold positions on the estate or explore other paths, the program shows that the growth of specialty coffee contributes to the growth of young lives and careers. Their efforts are producing exceptional coffees like this one with brown-sugar sweetness and herbal aromas.
