About the Producer
The Frinsa Collective is focused around a family-owned estate known as Frinsa, run by Wildan Mustofa. The “collective” refers to the family’s purchasing of coffee from neighboring producers for processing and sale from the Finsa Estate. According to green-coffee buyer Piero Cristiani, Wildan and his family are progressive, focusing on experimental processing more than is commonly found in Java. The Collective produces Honeys, Naturals, anaerobic-environment fermentation, and is also separating out single-variety lots. Wildan oversees the agricultural and processing side of the business, while his wife Atieq handles contracts and their son Fikri does the cupping.
