The story behind the cup
Despite its relatively young age, Ketiara quickly has established itself as one of the most-respected Fair-Trade cooperatives in the Gayo Highlands of Sumatra, producing excellent quality coffees, efficient contract performance, and focus on innovation and continuous improvement. The success of this Ketiara cooperative is attributed to the group’s leader, Rahmah, a tenacious and visionary woman. In contrast to the classic Sumatra profile dominated by notes of earth, cedar, and bell pepper, Ketiara’s coffees often feature fruit tones ranging from cherry and grape to citrus and pineapple, combined with lively acidity and creamy body.
Recommendation: We recommend ordering whole bean coffee for maximum freshness and flavor. Ground coffee starts to oxidize and age, resulting in a flat flavor. Customer satisfaction is not guaranteed for ground coffee.
