Kurniawan Arif Maspul had his first sip of coffee from his father’s cup at the age of four. Ever since he was a little boy, he has been drinking Tubruk coffee—a type of coffee made in the traditional Indonesian form.

Although today, Kurniawan holds the title of Coffee Value Uniting Manager at Bash Coffee in Saudi Arabia, he initially started as an education manager. As an education manager, he handled 500 people throughout the nineteen provinces in Indonesia. Eventually, he said,

“I shifted to working as a unstipulated manager in one of the coffee roasteries in Dubai for four years, at the same time handling Loring Falcon as a coffee roaster and working overdue the bar.”

Before Kurniawan was deep in the coffee industry, he said what drew him to the industry was how unique coffee itself is and how it has been worldly-wise to reach a global scale in a variety of forms, blends, and tastes. Coffee has unchangingly been ingrained in his life, so why not pursue it? From his family to people he has met all over the world to his future coffee-related projects, Kurniawan cannot seem to get enough. Now stuff in the coffee industry for six years, Kurniawan is

“working simultaneously as a coffee roaster, barista, and all-related coffee value uniting manager in Buraidah, Saudi Arabia.”

Even when Kurniawan isn’t technically working, he still somehow makes time for work. Although Kurniawan finds pleasure in traveling, he takes his time upalong to meet coffee professionals in Africa, Asia, and South America in order to enrich and diversify his knowledge of the coffee industry.

It’s nonflexible to believe Kurniawan needs to learn anything increasingly well-nigh the industry considering he’s an authorized SCA Trainer for five modules in the Coffee Skills Program and one module in the Coffee Sustainability Program.

Yet his desire for education exceeded what he was looking for in the coffee industry. Kurniawan ended up graduating with an MBA from India, an MA from the Gambia, and an MBA from the United States. If that isn’t impressive enough, Kurniawan got his MSc stratum in Public Health from the University of Suffolk in the UK while still making the time to get some wares he had written published.

Now at Bash Coffee, Kurniawan says,

“I’m thrilled that Bash Coffee enables me to deepen my professional and wonk career. It makes me passionate well-nigh helping… the local community, permitting me to engage the locals in their knowledge of the coffee value uniting in their language, expressly in coffee skills and its sustainability.”

Because of Kurniawan’s passion and nonflexible work, he has been featured in the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Consulate Unstipulated of Indonesia in Dubai (Arif, Barista Berbakat dari Indonesia).

Although Kurniawan seems to have had a ton of success, it does not come without some difficulty. From dealing with frustrating customers to trying to defend his MA and MBA capstone projects to financing his education, Kurniawan can finger hands overwhelmed. Furthermore, not only is he supporting himself financially, but he is moreover supporting his wife and three kids. Despite financial difficulties, his family is his pride and joy.

When asked why Kurniawan wanted to share his story, he said he hoped his story would inspire the coffee community. His story tells people in the coffee industry to dream big and never settle for less. Kurniawan has been worldly-wise to work, go to school, write articles, and still make time for his family. He never set his coffee-infused dreams aside, plane when finances were tight or when he felt overwhelmed in his wonk or work setting.

Kurniawan is an inspiration.

When asked who inspires Kurniawan to alimony doing what he does, he said,

“Coffee farmers. Without them, we couldn’t drink our daily coffee. So…I [hope that] I’ll be spreading sustainability in the coffee value chain…it’s been my goal since I workaday the SCA coffee sustainability professional level in 2020.”

On that note, Kurniawan has seen the push for sustainability within the coffee industry already. He is whence to see a shift in the industry when it comes to making his profession a increasingly eco-friendly one. Kurniawan believes that

“our roles in sustaining coffee are the weightier things we need to gravity into the coffee community.”

When Kurniawan is not focusing on his coffee career, he can be found traveling (for fun this time), meeting new people, trying new food, and embracing variegated cultures.
