COFFEE PLANTATION IS SECOND PLACE VISITED FOR KINTAMANI TOURS
Coffee has many environmental advantages compared to other cash crops. The shadow trees which are needed to protect the trees are all small reservoirs of water; moreover they hold the land, thereby keeping the fertile top layer of soil in place even during the rainy season. Moreover, this in turn attracts insects and bird life which – as you can witness – is very fertile at MMP. Organic coffee plantation farming in Bali therefore does not exhaust the land and – contrary to cash crops such as oranges, flowers or even clove – can in principle be maintained for many decades in the same place.
However, with coffee prices falling dramatically in the nineteen nineties, many farmers started to abandon coffee, switching to other cash crops that brought higher revenues. Soil erosion and falling water tables followed suit. At MMP we have been advocating coffee growing to our neighbours given that it is in the long run interest of the area and its population. We are trying to work with them to grow organic coffee, to obtain better prices and to cut out some of the layers in the production chain that collect a very large part of the revenue at the expense of the farmer. While coffee farming requires patience – trees only start bearing fruit after 4 years we believe that – helped by rising international prices on world markets and the active support of the Indonesian and Balinese authorities, we can succeed with our partners. A part of the revenues from our coffees is channeled back to the community in Gobleg and Munduk where MMP is located through our “Munduk Foundation” – which supports local projects, community development and each year gives a number of fellowships to local students.
