Here comes the Indonesian coffee in Stockholm

Ida Strids, Chairperson of Swedish Coffee Specialty Association



Stockholm (Thursday, May 10, 2018). Who doesn't recognise Indonesian arabica coffee like Bali Kintamani, Java Preanger, Malabar, Flores, Toraja, Aceh Gayo, Mandailing, Lintong and Papua. The richness of coffee species makes Indonesia often dubbed as “Coffee Paradise". The nickname was given during an exhibition of the “Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA)" in Seattle, USA, last year. Indonesia deserves the title because it has 39 variants of the best specialty coffee from all over Indonesia.

The world's third-largest producer of coffee and fourth-largest exporter. Almost 100 genetic varieties of Arabica. A total of 748 spoken languages. Yes, we are talking about Indonesia.

 

Ask Ida Strid's opinion regarding the Indonesian coffee? “Yes! Definitely I love Indonesian coffee and always will", said Ida. She went on to say that the flavour of Arabic coffee in every region is different, but Indonesian coffee is so special. It is different and favoured by coffee lovers from around the world. Ida is currently the Chairperson of the Swedish Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).

 

    There's no doubt that the Southeast Asian archipelago is a unique coffee-growing region. Specialty coffee has gained a following among many locals, particularly as farmers have grown their connections with micro roasters and cafés. The influx of local interest is now leading to both education and opportunities for the next generation of coffee farmers.


     Coffee is not just a delicious beverage with a variety of taste and characters. But coffee also a unity tool which can unite people from different backgrounds as reflected in the life of society where a cup of coffee can be familiarizing two people who never knew each other before.

The demo of the Indonesian coffee will take place at the Sheraton Hotel, Tegelbacken 6, Stockholm, Monday, May 14, 2018 starting at 10:00.
