About Kopi Lestari

Established in 2013, this project supports small-scale coffee farmers producing arabica coffee in Aceh and robusta coffee in Lampung.


Farmers in these regions face land erosion and decreased coffee yields due to a history of unsustainable monocropping, which has degraded the land and reduced their socio-economic opportunities.

PUR's Role

In Aceh and Lampung, PUR designs and implements agroforestry activities, seeking to address erosion and the loss of soil fertility, while also ensuring optimal production of coffee by regulating microclimatic conditions and improving farmers’ self-sufficiency.

Improving Farmers' Knowledge

Regular environmental training is delivered to improve farmers’ knowledge of agroforestry. This training covers the benefits of trees in coffee-producing landscapes, planting models and tree species, tree planting techniques, and tree maintenance.


Timber and fruit tree seedlings are provided to participating farmers.


Farmer communities gather to learn the importance and benefits of agroforestry so that they can eventually join the program.
