The Organic / Fair Trade Sumatra Aceh Ketiara coffee bean is a Vienna roast. This roasted bean has smooth notes of dark chocolate, mild cherry when brewed.
About The Bean Farm:
A small group of members from the Ketiara Cooperative live in the Bener Meriah highlands area that produces coffee from the Adsenia (TimTim) variety, one of the oldest coffee varieties in Aceh. Many of these producers are women who unfortunately lost their husbands in the 2003 civil war. They have persevered in a male-dominated industry to produce this bold cupping coffee. Many of the growers also produce orange, chili, avocado, banana, ginger, lemongrass, and honey. All the members who produce the Adsenia variety deliver their cherry to the Ketiara Cooperative for wet-hulling, dry milling and preparation for final export. It is the desire of the farmers in the Adsenia villages to continue producing this unique variety so that they can support the many widows and children and provide for their future.
