Our innovation is real-time monitoring and control system for the fermentation and drying process of post-harvest activities on coffee production using the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud. With the latest technology of cloud systems and IoT sensors, the measurement of a process could be monitored like never before.


Company Description

We provide better technology to improve post-harvest activities on coffee production is our core business. We believe that every sector of human activities deserves improvement with the touch of technology, and coffee production is no exception. We have two sub-systems called CeriFer and CeriGar.

Video Pitch:

CeriFer monitor and control the fermentation process of coffee post-harvest activities using the cloud-based system and IoT sensors so that the user could easily monitor and control the process in real-time. The system collecting pH and temperature data continuously from inside of the fermentation tank or tub. The user could also set up a specific alarm so that a desired condition of the processing could be met. To use the system, the user just needs to put the sensor on the coffee parchment or cherries that are about to be processed in a fermentation tank or tub. The software needs to be downloaded in their mobile device or computer to command the system to start collecting the data and also enable the user to monitor the process in the software.

CeriGar monitor and control the drying process of coffee post-harvest activities using the cloud-based system and IoT sensors so that the user could easily monitor and control the process in real-time. The system placed inside a drying house and continuously collects humidity, temperature, and light intensity data. Same as CeriFer, the user could also set up a specific alarm to warn them if the desired condition already met. To use CeriGar, the user needs to put the device inside of a drying house and the same software in CeriFer could be used to monitor the process in the drying house in real-time, simultaneously and continuously.

Our innovation will greatly benefit especially the coffee producers or farmers who carry out the fermentation and drying process in their post-harvest activities regardless of their size. In Indonesia alone, smallholder coffee farmers hit 2 million in number. From that 2 million, about 25% or 500.000 people are coffee farmers and producers of Arabica variety. This group of farmers and producers are our main target, which usually affiliates in cooperatives. We are targeting Arabica coffee farmers and producers or cooperatives because considering the value of the commodity, and also the demand in the market for a high quality of arabica coffee, this group of farmers and producers will have a great benefit from using our innovation.

Our priority target market would be arabica coffee farmers, producers, and cooperatives in Indonesia, which approximately hit 500.000 farmers/producers. Our second target market would be coffee farmers and producers in the world which consist of 25 million farmers and producers. The farmers, producers, and cooperatives could inquiry to our office or local representative and support to try the innovation for their first batch. And after their free trial, they could decide to buy the system. We have two different selling plans to offer to the farmers or producers.

The first plan is the one-time sell off-plan with a monthly software subscribe fees. A bundling package device with a year free subscribe will cost US$1200. The next year they could have a monthly software subscription fee for US$10. The second plan is the installment plan with two different options. The first option would include a third party that has farmers' financial inclusive programs, with third-party installment terms and 3 years period in which the price paid off will be at US$ 1800.

The second option would be installment based on profit sharing from their coffee production, with negotiable terms, 3 years period, and also the price paid off of US$ 1800.

Development & Production

Please specify in what phase you are!

At this moment we are developing our third MVP, and also finishing up software development. We already did several pilot projects and tests with some farmers and producers in two distinct areas, in North Bandung, West Java Island, and in Takengon, Aceh, Sumatra Island. Both are in Indonesia. We have already formed a mutual partnership with two farmers and producers in Takengon and an exclusive partnership of consultancy and projects with one farmer group in Bandung.
