Mangadap Sinaga and his officers and staffs informed many strategic and useful information as followings. Vision is to be tourism regency. Samosir regency has the most beautiful and largest lake on the world. However, 75% of the land locates in slope area which cannot be cultivated intensively. For this area coffee must be the promising solution. Coffee will be integral part of tourism. Nowadays, coffee growers are 5,100 households. Coffee plants covers 2,900 hectares with production in amount of 2,600 tons of coffee bean per year mostly Arabica coffee. Abundant of uncultivated area -thousands of hectares- are still available for coffee. Samosir regency is an ideal land for Arabica coffee because it locates on 900-1600 meter above sea level. Hence, the Samosir Regency area is very suitable for commercial and specialty coffee. Taste and aroma of Samosir coffee belongs to world’s best coffee. Samosir coffee are sold solely in form of bean. Government has plans such as to increase production and productivity, to increase coffee area, to stimulate coffee industry.  Samosir government invites coffee investors.

Sabam Malau presented data of his survey in Samosir Regency (Click here Coffee Berry Borer Hypothenemus hampei).

Sabam Malau and Mangadap Sinaga agreed and decided to work closely in which NSCF will educate the coffee growers by implementing NSCF’s Good Agricultural Practice in Coffee (Click here Good Agriculture Practice in Coffee Field ). Entry point will be the eradication of CBB. The first activity will be held in Pangururan on 22 September 2011 in which NSCF will give presentation to around 100 coffee growers and stakeholders. The goal is to awake the awareness of coffee stakeholders about the danger of CBB. NSCF and Samosir Government will facilitate the meeting. NSCF will be donated by USAID for the gathering.

AMARTA II Coffee Stakeholders Meeting

AMARTA II Coffee Stakeholders Meeting (Pertemuan Pemangku Kepentingan Kopi AMARTA II)
The world's need on coffee increases significantly. For it, the production and quality of coffee must be increased significantly by creating a better coffee value chain starting from producers to drinkers as the end-users. There were some success that had been achieved in Indonesia especially in North Sumatra Province, but there are still much more to do in the future for the sake of sustainability of supply and quality. The action programs will be formulated in the next step by ACDIVOCA, the winner of tender of AMARTA II Project. Farther meetings are needed to hear what activities will be offered by ACDIVOCA. We all are keen to know. Let's wait the invitation letters from ACDIVOCA. 

Those mentioned above were some general conclusions that I could draw from the  AMARTA II Coffee Stakeholders Meeting held by USAID-AMARTA II Project in Grand Aston Hotel Medan on Monday 13 February 2012.
