What could unite a café owner, IT specialists, a financial expert, an environmentalist, a barista and an employee of an energy company? It’s coffee. They all went on a recent trip organized by the Specialty Coffee Association of Indonesia (SCAI) to Central Aceh and Bener Meriah, both in Aceh province, to explore the world of coffee.
“Coffee connects me to people of various backgrounds,” said trip participant Hans Suke, an IT specialist who started a coffee café business in 2012 in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan.
As a coffee organization with members of various backgrounds — from coffee traders to farmers; coffee experts to coffee lovers — SCAI has a mission to promote coffee the right way.
