Sumatra Aceh Bintang Dirahmah – Women Coffee Producer Program – Fair Trade OrganicIn Stock: 39 Lbs
Taste: The earthiness you expect from a Sumatra blended with sweet red pepper and a smooth mouthfeel.
Roast: We like to roast these medium to medium/dark so we don’t loose their innate sweetness.
About: The Ketiara Cooperative was formed in 2008 by Ms. Ibu Ramhah, a farmer and former coffee collector in the region of Central Aceh. She manages the cooperative and its subgroups, including Ratu Ketiara, which was founded in 2015 with 1,128 smallholder members. The producers here own small plots of land, and many grow disease-resistant coffee varieties that have been developed for cultivation in Indonesia, including Ateng and other Catimors. Coffee here is depulped the day it’s delivered to the washing station, then fermented for 12–24 hours before being cleaned of its mucilage. It is pre-dried on patios for 5–8 hours, then the parchment layer is removed in the Wet-Hulled process and the coffee is dried again for 1–2 days.
