New arrival! Do you love Sumatran coffee? Help us evaluate this new Gayo Region Organic blended Arabica coffee.

This extraordinary export from the Aceh region, containing Tim-Tim, Djember, and Ateng varietals, is smooth and rich. Aceh is the northernmost province in Sumatra, and its citizens have their own religion, dialects, and traditions, including the ways in which they process their coffee. The wet-hulled, sun-dried process creates an earthy, complex flavor profile that is unlike any other coffee.

The Koperasi Pedagang Kopi Ketiara is a women-run cooperative that has over 890 grower-members, founded in 2008 by Ibu Rahmah, the current chairwoman, who had operated and managed her family’s coffee business for 20 years-purchasing cherries, processing the green, and selling to local traders. The passion and commitment of the women managers to have all members working together in support of coffee production has enabled Ketiara to expand and become an important supplier to larger coffee traders in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra. The cooperative members voted to become Organic certified in 2012, making a commitment to use their proceeds to create programs for health, education, and public infrastructure projects that will benefit all coop members.
