The island of Flores has produced significant volumes of coffee for well over a century. Coffee is a smallholder crop in Flores, grown within a subsistence-based agricultural system, and is the principal source of farm income in the Districts of Manggarai and Ngada. The natural environment in these Districts, with high altitudes, seasonal rainfall and extremely fertile soils, is well-suited to coffee production.
