Here we roast the inimitable Sumatra Ketiara Organic three ways: dark, light and medium. Each roast brings out different characteristics– from fruit and herbs to dark chocolate and rich molasses. We then mix the three together in this deliciously seck-sie blend.
The Koperasi Pedagang Kopi Ketiara, located in the forests in the Takengon Highland in the Aceh region, is a women-run cooperative founded by Ibu Rahmah who had operated and managed her family’s coffee business for 20 years. The passionate women managers voted to become organic and Fairtrade certified in 2012, and to use these proceeds to create programs for health, education, and public infrastructure projects for their community. The natural drying method used in its production results in a very full body with a concentrated flavor. The coffee has a low acidity, high body and a richness that lingers on the back corners on your tongue.
