The "Kukang Coffee" project was born to help farmers in our partner area of Tanah Karo live in a sustainable way while helping to protect nature there. We have created a community of coffee producers, in cooperation with which we have developed a methodology for the sustainable cultivation and processing of high-quality coffee, which we buy from them at a higher price than what they could get at the market. In return, we demand from this community of farmers their binding promise to abide by the ban on hunting endangered and protected wildlife in their vicinity. In addition, we finance our conservation activities in this area from the profit from the sale of this ecologically produced coffee. The so-called "Kukang Coffee" thus supports the locals and at the same time helps protect slow lorises and other endangered wild animals in the forest in this area.
