The Tlogosari Village, where the coffee beans are grown, has a social non-profit organization set up by the villagers for the community's well-beings, and the organization is called Pokmas Walida.

20% of the profit from the coffee beans sales go directly to the social non-profit organization, which run a local K-12 school that educate the villagers in his village, some small percentage goes to the government in exchange to letting the villagers grow coffee there. He made the efforts to educate the local villagers for free, because many of the villagers are not prioritizing education, with many of them opting to quit school after elementary school to settle and work as farmers. His background of having went to universities has made him very concerned with the education level of his home region (many are practicing very early marriages, around ages 14-16, and not aware of more opportunities), and he decided that he was going to be the one to come up with a solution to bring more value-add to his village

His coffee is grown at elevations of around 1200 masl in the footsteps of Mount Argopuro, in Situbondo Regency, East Java Province of Java Island. The reason he has natural-processed coffee is because water is very scarce in his area and the government has not been active in helping build irrigation systems there. The harvest season begins around early May and ends around late July. The coffee varieties grown include Lini S288 and Kartika.
