This coffee is grown by the 897 members of the cooperative Koperasi Pedgang Kopi (KOPEPI) Ketiara. Though Ketiara has its roots in the 90’s, the cooperative was founded in 2009 with 38 original members. Ketiara is the only women-lead coffee cooperative in Indonesia. The co-op Chair, Rahma, has been with the organization since it’s inception, carefully guiding its development.   

The current membership comprises over 836 hectares of arable land. A shade canopy and companion planting of staple food crops is found throughout the co-op, along with a broad diversity of wildlife including the endangered Sumatran tiger, elephant and orangutan.  If you’d like to learn more about the Ketiara Women’s Cooperative, click here.

Once picked, the seeds are wet hulled during their preparation and are then sun-dried and carefully hand picked before export. Wet Hulled process coffee is slightly cleaner than its natural process cousin, as it involves a soaking stage in water prior to being stripped of its hull. The coffee retains an exotic Indonesian character. Because of its heavy body this coffee is very versatile. And though we enjoy it black, even at our  unique light roast treatment, this coffee is a great choice for those who drink their coffee with milk or cream.

This coffee is a part of our Origin Certified(TM) Program. The Ketiara has been certified at origin by Control Union Certifications B.V.  as having been produced without the use of pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers. The Ketiara has also been certified Fair Trade at Origin by Fairtrade International (FLO).
