Research on the impact or influence of Sustainability Standards and Certification/SSC in the coffee sector has been widely conducted, especially in Latin America and Africa. However, these studies have not reached conclusive findings about the impacts of SSC. Even the results of the study appear to be contradictory, subjective and debated between the positive impact of SSCs, insignificant impacts, and even negative impacts on livelihoods of coffee farmers. Research that examines the impact of SSC on coffee farmers in Indonesia is relatively rare. Based on a review of the literature and previous authors' research, this paper aims to (1) to explore barriers and opportunities that Indonesian smallholders face regarding participation in the SSC, and (2) to reflect on what these implications (barriers and opportunities) are for the pathway to more sustainable coffee production in Indonesia. The authors' findings imply that economic sustainability should be the basis of sustainability in Indonesian coffee production. However there is an inherent relationship between the dimensions of economic and social sustainability and the environment, which further implies that a systemic view is needed to better understand the important factors leading to more sustainable coffee production. The authors conclude that in order to improve sustainability in Indonesian coffee production, SSC and subsequent studies can increase their focus on how to harmonize global SSC schemes, increase national SSC’s potential, address production-related issues such as how farmers can address climate change (e.g., temperature rise, rainfall and so on) and reduce the risk of crop failure, and how women's participation in the coffee value chain can be improved.
