This organic sumatra fair trade coffee is produced at the KOPEPI Ketiara Cooperative , located in the Gayo Highlands, district of Takengon and Bener Meriah, Central Aceh, Sumatra. All of the farms produce 100% shade-grown coffee. The average farm size is about 1.2 hectares per member, with a large percentage of members being women. KOPEPI Ketiara has consistently seen increase in women producers joining the cooperative. They believe this is a fantastic result of what the cooperative has been doing to support women producers and will continue to promote economic growth, welfare, and environmental preservation.
In addition to organic coffee, this area of Sumatra is teeming with flora and fauna: Monkey, birds, reptiles, elephant, orangutan, wild boar, wild buffalo, and countless species of tropical plants inhabit the jungle forests.
The coffee bouteaque prides ourselves in working with farms as this. We are honored to roast this coffee from this farm with such a wonderful reputation honoring women. We hope you enjoy the nuances in this roast.
