Fair Trade Sumatran

Whereas Central American coffees are distinguished by their dry, winey aftertaste, the coffees of Indonesia are noted for their richness, full body, long finish, and an acidity that, though pronounced, is deep-toned and gentle.

    SUMATRAN (KKGO)

    Whereas Central American coffees are distinguished by their dry, winey aftertaste, the coffees of Indonesia are noted for their richness, full body, long finish, and an acidity that, though pronounced, is deep-toned and gentle. The Fair Trade movement advocates the payment of a higher price to farmers as well as higher social and environmental standards.

    For those whose palettes favor a lighter roast, try our Sumatran coffee.

    About the Co-op - Café Altura Sumatran Dark Roast coffee is produced on family owned farms organized around the Koperasi Kopi Gayo Organic cooperative (KKGO), 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.

    Organic and exotic brew for that one best cup ever tasted

    I have loved Sumatran coffee for a long while when I could get it and used to grind it myself. All varieties of whole bean coffee on these pages are flavorful coffee in bean form, ripe from the location they were grown in. And each one is totally distinct from the others. One will have huge oily beans or another can have small and dried out beans making the beans look dusty. As I recall Sumatran is a large oily looking bean. Exotic coffees like those found here are direct from the source and pure. None one better and you cannot go wrong not knowing what coffee to choose from here because it will surely take top rank in your experience of tasting that "best cup ever". dx
