Specialty coffee is known as high-quality coffee that has a distinctive flavor that varies depending on where the coffee is grown. Recording information on the coffee supply chain in Indonesia is still done manually using paper. The purpose of this research is to design a traceability system to ensure the authenticity and quality of specialty coffee as a replacement for the manual system. The design of the traceability system in this study was developed based on a case study of the Java Preanger Arabica coffee supply chain at CV Frinsa Agrolestari, Pangalengan, West Java. Data collection was conducted through observations, interviews, and field studies to identify the supply chain and characteristics of specialty coffee. The traceability system design method uses UML and ER Diagram combined with the concept of CBIS (Computer Based Information System). The results showed that the factors that shape the characteristics of specialty coffee occur during the pre-harvest and post-harvest processes, namely recording coffee fruit, harvesting red ripe coffee fruit, floating, post-milling quality control, sorting based on density, size and color, and quality control of primary and secondary defects coffee beans. Then design a prototype of a website-based specialty coffee traceability application that can be accessed by smartphones. Actors involved in the system are farmers, collectors, processors, and exporters. Data acquisition uses QRCode (Quick Response Code) to support the traceability system
