In a recent partnership with Bali-based Java Mountain Coffee, AYANA Hotels works toward a more sustainable tourism brand. Offering Java Mountain Coffee products throughout AYANA Resort and Spa in Bali, the sustainably sourced coffee is now part of a growing eco-friendly tourism theme in the industry.
With authentic Indonesian coffee available, guests enjoy coffee made with beans harvested on the hillside of Mount Batu in Munduk, in the Ciwidey mountain range. Java Mountain Coffee capsules are biodegradable and compostable — a big step in the coffee industry.
By they end of last year, Java Mountain Coffee launched the Java Mountain Women’s Coffee Cooperative, the first all-female farmer cooperative in Indonesia. The organization also works to provide jobs in low-income villages with a variety of opportunities in coffee-growing regions.
As a whole, the Java Mountain partnership bodes well for AYANA Hotels, from being a premier product for guests as well as reflecting the interests of the brand.
Guests enjoy fresh, local and sustainably sourced coffee while supporting the Women’s Empowerment Innovation Fund, local economic growth and eco-friendly tourism. In partnership with the United Nations, Java Mountain Coffee seeks to embolden 1 million female coffee farmers and plant 3 million coffee and shade trees in Bali and Java by 2030.
