Aroma Kopi Paberik

Bandung, Indonesia (pop. 7.4 mil) is famous for its “Aroma Kopi Paberik” (Aroma Coffee Factory).  The factory is really quite small with only about 15 (?) or so employees and two small roasters.  Even though it is small, it is well known in the city, and almost every main grocery store sells its packaged coffee. From its opening in the 1930’s, the factory is still producing coffee the old fashioned way… everything by hand and no artificial additives.

Below is the video we made of our tour of the factory.
