The objective of the research was to elucidate the role of extension participation on enhancing risk taking behavior of the economic lost of the local elites group as the basic of triggering coffee agroforestry farmer’s income beside both social capital and physical capital. The elite, in this study, is defined every one that exhibits 3 characteristics or behavior i.e. risk taker talent, leading in coffee agroforest practice, and expressing good performance in coffee bean post harvesting. The research was conducted in July-August 2020 at the at community forest on Batutegi Forest Mangement Unit (BFMU) of Lampung Province. Data collecting were carried out in 4 steps: (i) interviewing the manager of BFMU to find the prior infomation around the probable local elites existed in the community, (ii) validating the probable elites by visting door to door and made observation about their pioneering especially for (ii.a) forest covering performance of their land, (ii.b) post harvesting management of coffee fruit, (c) measuring their talent of risk taking characteristic. The the criterium of the steps (ii.a) was farmers whose land exhibits covering by canopy timber wood estimated of more than 30%, and the criterium for step (ii.b) the farmer who threats their coffee fruits in post harvesting management according to Indonesian National Standard # 01-2907-2008 that revised based on the Resolution of ICO 407. Having founded both criteria, we then carried out the (iii) measuring risk taking level on economics lost for every local elites group using a modivited guide line of DOSPERT on 3 level of scales: strong, medium and low. We got 46 people being recognized as the local elites, besides 77 people who classified as non elites. We also collected the data of their participation in extension, social capital (norm, trust, and network) and the physical capitals (land acreage holding, and motor bike or car ownership). Step (iv) We employed Ordinal Logistic Regression Model to demonstrate the effect of extension to risk taking behavior at confident level of 5 and 10%. We further employed the Ordinary Least Square to examine the role of local elites group, social capital, and physical capital on the [Y_AGFR]. The research suggested that the extension participation was the only effective way in enhancing risk taking behavior of economic lost of the local elites [R_ECONM]. The [R_ECONM] could enhance the the coffee agroforestry farmer’s income [Y_AGRF] significantly accompanied by their social capital but not by physical capital
