FLORES ORGANIC RFA WONGAWALI NGURA RED CHERRY is sourced from 80 family owned farms located on the eastern slopes of Wolo Ngadha and Wolo Atagae in the Ngada regency of Flores, Eastern Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The Wongawali farmer group has pooled resources to improve processing coffee using wet-hulling techniques (called “Ngura” in the Ngadha language), a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed, giving the coffee its hallmark Indonesian flavor. Coffee is dried on raised beds at this location. The Red Cherry Project coffees provide dividends to farmers who deliver ripe coffee to collection centers.
