Klasik Beans is a cooperative founded in 2008 by a group of producers in Puntang on the island of Java. This small cooperative shares a similar philosophy to Belco in terms of quality and respect for people and the environment. The cooperative has set itself the objective of helping to preserve Indonesia’s cultural heritage through the creation of organic, sustainable, fair trade coffees. Production must comply with good agricultural practices (nowadays almost 100% organic and fully shade-grown).
Their main sites, Banding and Puntang, are in Java but they also have washing stations at Pacet and Ciwidey.
They have also established themselves on the islands of Bali, Flores and Sulawesi by creating partnerships with local producers.
On the island of Bali, Klasik Beans has teamed up with a farmer named Yon who processes coffee on land donated by the cooperative. He also has a beautiful hostel at the foot of Mount Batur. He shares values with Klasik Beans that are totally in line with his philosophy – he has even had the cooperative’s slogan tattooed on his body.

Indonesia, a country the size of Europe, stretches over 5000 km from east to west. The great wealth of terroirs and the great variety of preparations make this origin exceptional and extremely rich in terms of cup profiles. In this great diversity, we are fortunate to have Klasik Beans as a partner. A pioneer in the production of speciality coffees, this cooperative approaches the world of coffee with a philosophy, thanks to the vision of its founder, Eko. Klasik Beans' philosophy is to provide farmers with the means to produce high quality coffees while respecting the relationships between man and man, man and the environment, and man and his ancestral traditions. This is combined with flawless organisation, technological knowledge, agricultural skills and preparation methods, all shared by the whole community.
