I am a Servant
I clean the plastic packaging used cracker jack fruit, potatoes and other light snacks. Cigarette ashes and the packaging of various brands I collected in plastic bags for waste disposal place. Cigarette ash floating above the table cleaned using a slightly damp cloth. In order to clean the table again.
Now I serve cafeteria. Nothing more than that. A waiter. I chose this job after working in various print media, online news sites, tabloid, was not able to fumigate the kitchen of my family continuously. Life goes on
I have to change direction. There should be a steady income from the business for the future kulakoni family. Four of my children have started a large and costly for their various purposes. I should have paid for it.
While the salary of a journalist, contributor, or whatever his name, was not enough in Aceh. Unless I want to be a journalist blackmailer by looking for cases of corrupt officials, cheating or drugs. Then bully for members of money if you do not want the news raised in the media. Like many journalists do in Takengon. Although there are at prodeokan partly because trick or blackmail. But many more who prowl.
Most journalists use the wrong type of blackmailer Press with additional letters 'a' between the letters "r" and "s" to be squeezed, is a journalist who is paid weekly newspaper, but are welcome to find their own salaries in the field. Both the resource persons or officials and citizens in trouble with the law.
Style reporter extortionists who are often called, CNN (Only Nanya his pants), no news is far more frightening than the more journalists are taught to maintain ethics and code of ethics of journalism. They thrive and grow because there is no courage of this journalist who blackmailed the police report or the newspaper concerned.
Experience working in print media in Java Post group in Aceh, which was published nearly five years, my salary barely Rp.1.5 million / month.
My choice fell into a special canteen waiter presents the main menu of coffee from espresso machines. The waiter is called a Barista.
Options become Barista has passed a variety of considerations of time and length by taking into account various aspects. At least, that's my best thoughts at the time.
The rationale was, like the availability of coffee jelly (roasting), which became the main ingredient of espresso. And possible further expansion to provide a variety of derivative products from arabica. As ground coffee, coffee roasting and others.
According to official data, Coffee (Coffea) is a commodity trading dunia.Di Central Aceh coffee plantation area 48 000,-ha, with the number of coffee farmers 33 000 heads of households (HH). Bener Meriah area is 39,490 hectares of coffee farmers by the number of coffee farmers and coffee 29 000 heads of households in the district of Gayo Lues reached 7800 hectares with 3968 coffee farmers head of the family.
Several new countries that buy Gayo coffee is Portugal, Britain, Sweden, Australia and Italy. Some countries like the United States, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Belgium, Germany and Norway, has been recorded beforehand Gayo coffee imports.
According to data from the Office of Trade Industry, Cooperatives and SMEs in Aceh, the U.S. is the country's most lots purchased Gayo coffee.
Carrying value of commodity exports Gayo coffee during the period January to September 2010 and then reached 12 million U.S. dollars.
While ambassadors $ 7 U.S. dollars (USD) others, purchased the other 11 countries. About 90 percent of Gayo coffee exported, the rest is processed for various purposes, such as used coffee powder and coffee roasting (jam) and other needs.
Area of arabica coffee in the Regency of Central Aceh and Bener Meriah who reached 87 thousand hectares, the average production of 80 thousand tons / year.
However, some parties felt that the area of coffee production and Central Aceh, official figures far ditas version of this local government.
As said Iwan, residents Paya Tumpi Takengon. According to Iwan, if carried out data on the number of coffee farmers and coffee plantation area in Central Aceh and Bener Meriah or update the latest data at this time, he believes the number of large coffee farmers are well above 87 thousand hectares.
"The hell's just that much (87 thousand hectares) of coffee plantation area in Central Aceh and Bener Meriah. Try re-recorded. I believe that breadth is more than that. It could be over 100 thousand hectares. The problem is, the data is made in how and whether the enumerators dropped directly into the field ", says Iwan asked.
According to Blue, no coffee acreage data accuracy and the number of farmers is very detrimental to the area in many ways. Elsewhere, Zainul Purba, a civil servants who take care of trade in Central Aceh Local Government states that many exporters in Central Aceh, no export permit in Takengon.
"As a result we do not know for sure the number of Central Aceh coffee exports annually. Because only a small proportion of exporters who export licenses in the area, "said Zainul a time.
Most exporters prefer to take care of permits in the Port of Belawan in North Sumatra.
What is said Iwan and Zainul is a fact that should be followed up because it involves the interests of the region. In a casement Tabloid paper, edition of February 2008. According to the Central Aceh district head Ir.Nasaruddin MM, vast coffee plantations in Central Aceh's 46 000 hectares.
90 percent are in their fields, and become the largest contributor to revenue, every year Rp.3 billion. Local Government Rp.250/kilogram collect retribution. Even so, according to the tabloid's regent, 16,966 heads of families still live underlined poverty. That is 36.6 percent of the total population at that time, as many as 185,000 inhabitants.
Coffee in Central Aceh, it is clear first of all brought the Netherlands. Dutch entry to Takengon around in 1904 to record and map suitable sites planted with a variety of commodities, such as coffee, tea and resin (pine mercusi).
According Wiknyo, population Tumpi Paya, a former agricultural extension, which is now being examined Gayo Arabica coffee. The first Dutch once a coffee plantation in Central Aceh District is in Paya Tumpi plumpness.
"The Dutch made the first coffee plantation in Paya Tumpi once in 1924," said Wiknyo. After Paya Tumpi, the Netherlands and then to develop coffee plantations to Berhendal (Bergendal) Teritit Bener Meriah District until Redines Bukit Mata Kelupak.
After that the Netherlands developed a coffee plantation area circle Bur One Name. Bur one name is an active volcano which had erupted Wiknyo 200 years ago.
