Our current dark roasted Sumatra coffee features Sumatra FTO Takengon Ketiara Gayo from Royal Coffee:
Sumatra FTO Takengon Ketiara Gayo 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.
