12oz bag of coffee

Organic, Co-op Coffee

These beans comes from the Ketiara Cooperative, which was established in 2009 by 38 people and joined the Fair Trade movement in 2011. Today it has nearly 900 members and is mainly led by women, who occupy the positions of General Manager, Finance Manager, and Chairwoman.  Member farms are situated around the Out Tawar Lake in the Gayo Highland in the district of Takengon and Bener Meriah, Central Aceh. This area is mountainous, tropical forest within the Leuser Ecosystem. The co-op uses the wet-hulled or semi-washed processing method, called “Giling Basah” in the local language. 

The coffee is grown in an area that is surrounded by the Gunung Leuser National Park which straddles the border of North Sumatra and Aceh Provinces. The park is home to many mammals, birds, and primates such as the Sumatra tiger, wild buffalo, elephant, python, and several species of maccaca, as well as thousands of plant species. The park is also the last remaining habitat for Sumatra Orangutans.
