Premium coffee network for experts and enthusiasts.

We are a community devoted to the true appreciation of coffee, based in Jakarta.

We bring together industry leaders and coffee aficionados in the field to discuss issues about the local coffee industry and how to improve coffee’s current condition in Indonesia, from bean to cup.

We are building a new coffee era in Indonesia.

In 2018, in partnership with the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs, we published the official roadmap for Coffee Indonesia, detailing the current competitive market, effects of climate change, and policy recommendations to improve the conditions of coffee production in the near future and for long-term.

Also, we are determined to revive Kopi Mandailing, an Indonesian bean variety that is rich in history and flavor but produced in extremely low quantities due to poor farming practices and climate change. We are building coffee plantations in Mandailing Natal not only to improve the lives of coffee farmers in the area but also to produce a steady supply of premium Mandailing arabica coffee beans to Indonesia and the world.

Revolutionizing Coffee through Education

Kopling acts as the platform for opinion leaders and industry giants to share ideas and revolutionize our coffee scene. We invite Indonesia’s most inspired thinkers to give talks that deepen knowledge of coffee and to conduct sensory activities to develop sensory techniques and skill.

Our Vision

To create a vibrant, dynamic ecosystem of coffee experts that lead the advancement of the coffee industry in Indonesia.

Our Philosophy

  • Progress starts from the bean and the story behind it. 
  • If one component is deficient, the entire value-chain will fail. All elements must work in harmony. (Anna Karenina Principle)
  • Stakeholders must engage and learn from each other. (Network effect)

Our Principles

  • Intelligence can be acquired through sustained hard work.
  • Strong factual knowledge precedes skill.
  • Sensory skills are gained only through regular practice.

Main Event

Unless we appreciate our own coffee, no one will appreciate our coffee.

We believe in the importance of bringing stakeholders together to learn from each other. We also believe that coffee is all about sensory skills. As such, our monthly conference consists of two parts – powerful, short talks by guest speakers and coffee sensory events.

We kick off our third coffee conference with talks by two key speakers and our signature coffee cupping event.
