message from montessori
montessori students

We are Lil Lotus CoFFee team: Lyla, Ryoma, Campbell, Jazz & Andreas. We follow the adolescent program at Montessori School Bali. We represent the next generation , and as such, learning about sustainability & how we can improve the planet will be key for the future. Business is part of our curriculum. We partnered up with su-re.co & their sustainable coffee, helping local farmers with clean energy & climate education.

The skills we have gained from this whole experience include organisation, marketing, communication, time management, research, science, mathematics & problem solving. Our learning is academic & authentic in nature. We would like to thank su-re.co team so much for their help & support. Enabling us to visit directly farmers was an experience we will never forget.

In order to keep their important work going, please donate to su-re.co crowdfunding campaign. Money that is raised will go directly into educating farmers. Lil Lotus CoFFee would like to donate $35 USD to the campaign.

the problem

30% of Indonesians - roughly the total population of Germany - are farmers  and impacted by climate change because of rising temperatures, decreasing rain precipitations, e.g. ca. 1°C hotter since 1990.

30% of Indonesians live off primary biomass energy such as firewood. Indonesia is now one of the biggest greenhouse gas emitting countries in the world, people are even suffering from unhealthy smoke!

Coffee farms are a great start for the use of biogas. The farmer can utilise organic fertiliser and use the clean gas, adapting to become ‘climate smart’.

Our solution

Sustainable coffee: Selling coffee beans bought at a fair price directly from farmers to raise funds.

Climate field school: Hosting farmers through the school at every village we buy coffee beans from, to teach climate-smart agriculture

Biogas and organic agriculture: Installing biogas digesters to produce clean renewable energy and organic fertilisers for farmers.

the market

2 million smallholders coffee farmers living in remote villages across the country.

1 million biogas digesters are needed in Indonesia, estimated by biogas experts, BIRU.

A conventional fixed biogas digester costs approximately $1000 USD including installation and training. Our easily transportable digester costs $300 USD including installation and training without subsidy.

traction

6 Climate Field Schools were hosted by su-re.co with BMKG (Indonesian Meteorological Climatology and Geophysics Agency) in 2018.

$300 USD biogas digesters were developed by su-re.co for 2 years and prototypes were installed to farmers. A conventional fixed biogas digester cost approximately $1000 USD including installation and training.

insight

36% less rainfall in East Indonesia compared to the national average - this will only get worse.

su-re.coffee is a result of European Union's GreenWin & TRANSRisk projects, case study mixing science and policy-making for climate change mitigation and adaptation all around the world. Our project represented Indonesia.

120+ international experts, policy makers, and farmers engaged in 3 bioenergy & climate change workshops in Bali hosted by su-re.co, to formulate this strategy.

40+ international scientific journal publications by su-re.co members and collaboration with world renowned institutions.

su-re.coffee crowdfunding campaign already received a generous $5000 USD promise of backing from FOUR SEASONS RESORT Bali at Jimbaran Bay, awarded as the best resort in the world in 2018. This is equivalent to 3 more biogas digesters installed in 3 more Indonesian farms! We are over the moon with this good news and look forward for the customers of the resort to try our sustainable coffee. THANK YOU!

Together su-re.co and Montessori School Bali's adolescent class have worked cooperatively to conduct the Cafe Project; development of a green business emphasizing the importance of tackling climate change. After a field trip directly at the farm in Jembrana, West Bali, visiting Pak Cakra, one of su-re.coffee farmers, Lil Lotus’ coFFee team developed their own business model and marketing strategy to promote sustainable coffee. We are deeply humbled and empowered by what these students have already accomplished, and will continue to do in the future.
