Sumatra Organic Aceh Ketiara - FTO


Starting at $7.75 / lb
As low as $6.25 / lb

The Koperasi Pedagang Kopi Ketiara is a women-run cooperative that has over 890 grower-members. The Ketiara Cooperative was started 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 coffee beans, and selling to local traders. The passionate 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 and Fairtrade certified in 2012, making a commitment to use these proceeds to create programs for health, education, and public infrastructure projects that will benefit all co-op members.

People Who Bought This Also Bought

Chocolatey with a carmelly texture, heavy fruits, and a sweet honeyness.
If balance is the key to power, as we learned in the late 70's, then this is a powerful coffee!
Cane sugar sweetness, medium acidity, and creamy body with sweet caramel overtones and a slight cocoa note on the finish.

Found the perfect double roast cycle for these delicious beans. I love it when a non home roaster tastes this coffee who thought Starbucks was the bomb. Coffee Bean Corral is by far the best green bean purveyor from which I've ordered. They have the widest selection of green beans.

Very good coffee. I made it darker than normal. It produced strong aroma. It is more like a treat with rich flavor. Might be too much for a breakfast with omelet :-)

Amazing coffee. An absolutely awesome co-op to support. As for cupping, I feel a hint of nuts, some herbs like thyme or sage. There's a spark of citrus and an overall earthy taste. We really enjoy it as do our customers.
