Kalala Coffe

文字-A A +A

Located in the area of Hualian’s Wuhe Village, Kalala Tribe is one of the finest coffee growing areas established in 1932 by the Japanese. A few years ago The Farmer’s Association began promoting Wuhe coffee, which last year started to receive assistance in the hope of developing indigenous people’s industry. The Kalala Tribe treat the land with great love and care integrating the various local plant species and agricultural crops such as rice together to grow in harmony, and vehemently refuse to farm with a mono-crop mentality - making the land richer and more productive. 

They have also developed a different way of processing the beans to match the local conditions of water scarcity, ‘the honey method’, which unlike the traditional method of washing the beans with large quantities of water, instead directly sun dries the beans after the skin has been removed. This process not only retains the sweet flavor of the bean but also greatly reduces the amount of water wasted in processing. This cup of coffee is providing the indigenous people of the region with the possibility for economic autonomy, and reducing the gap between the farmer and consumer. Those promoting the coffee also hope that the industry can bring back more of the young people to the area and diminish many of the indigenous people’s problems.

迦納納(Kalala)咖啡 (公民記者 慈大傳播站(tzuchicom) 報導)

位於花蓮舞鶴村的迦納納部落,是1932年日本人在台灣試種咖啡的產地之一,幾年前,農會開始推廣舞鶴咖啡,去年開始接受輔導協助,以咖啡豆為推廣部落產業的目標。迦納那部落用一顆善待土地的心,結合其他植物稻作一起生長,而非單一作物大面積來栽植咖啡,讓土地達到更永續的利用;不同於一般處理咖啡豆的水洗法,順應迦納納容易缺水的地理因素,部落的農民透過「蜜處理」的方式洗豆,將新鮮的漿果脫皮後直接日曬,不但可以保留咖啡豆的甜度,也可以減少水資源的浪費。這一杯咖啡,提供了部落自主經濟的可能,縮短了咖啡農與消費者間的距離,咖啡推廣者也期許,未來迦納納會有更多的年輕人回到部落工作,減少部落問題。

『當他作他家裡自己的產業的時候,就不會將土地給轉賣出去』,讚!

原來愛台灣就是這麼簡單。
