BALI (Paradiso) – In line with AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI’s mission to support sustainable tourism at their flagship resort in Jimbaran, as well as within the surrounding community, the hospitality group is pleased to announce its recent collaboration with the social enterprise Java Mountain Coffee.
Effective immediately, AYANA suite and pool villa guests will find biodegradable and compostable coffee capsules, conveniently available in their accommodation for authentic Indonesian coffee breaks any time of day. Each capsule is filled with farm fresh, micro-roast coffee sourced from the cool hillsides of Mount Batu Karu in Munduk and Ciwidey mountain ranges.
Organized by Java Mountain Coffee mission and United Nations commitment to empower 1 million women coffee farmers and plant 3 million climate resistant coffee and shade trees by 2030. With this knowledge, AYANA guests can enjoy their morning coffee knowing that each sip helps to contribute to support the Women’s Empowerment Innovation Fund, a fund dedicated to financing Java Mountain Coffee’s Sustainable Program.
As coffee consumption is forecasted to grow 3 times current demand by 2050, against declining yields globally, AYANA is thrilled to support the first all-women farmer membered cooperatives, the first to be established in Indonesia’s cooperative history. This is a notable milestone as Indonesia is the third largest producer of coffee in the world.
“The women members of both the Bali Mountain Women’s Coffee Cooperative and Java Mountain Women’s Coffee Cooperative are very grateful to AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI for their commitment to a measured sustainable coffee partnership, which will contribute to positive outcomes for the local community and environment over time through women,” said Nadine Alexandra, Spokeswoman, for the cooperatives.
