The farmer of Gunung Halu formerly cultivating vegetables (potatoes, cabbage, celery, tomatoes, leeks and so on) on his own land, while planting coffee only as his side job because vegetables have faster harvest time compared to coffee. However, he always strives for improvement. He tried to develop coffee in Perhutani land through the pattern of PHBM (Community of Forest Management), as well as being a collector and processor of coffee cherries.
The quality of his plantation green beans have been judged by many quality testers, even the researchers from PUSLITKOKA, Jember.

On the latest cupping test held by Q graders, this coffee reached score above 85.
