Imported from the Aceh region of Sumatra (Indonesian island), this triple-picked (sorted 3 times) coffee is roasted at a Viennese level, just into the bold category. In the cup, this Sumatra has a nice but not-too-heavy full body, low in acidity, with rich, earthy notes of dark chocolate and walnut.

This grade-1 coffee is produced on family-owned farms organized around the Ketiara cooperative, located in the Takengon highlands of the Aceh province on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. This region of Indonesia is also referred to as the Gayo land because the coffee farmers are from the Gayonese ethnic group. A high percentage of farmers, typically from the most remote villages of the Takengon highlands, are widows who lost their husbands during periods of conflict in Aceh. These families are also in the process of rebuilding after an earthquake in 2013. A women’s origination was recently formed to address the needs of the community, which includes plans to build a health center in the community.
