Gayo Highlands Sumatra Indonesia

On the northern half of the island of Sumatra, Indonesia lies a mountainous region called the Gayo Highlands.

The area is home to lush rain forest, exotic wildlife, and a vibrant shade-grown coffee community led by the Kopepi Ketiara Cooperative. Each bag of Small Batch No. 03 comes from this cooperative, supporting its goal of empowering women through coffee farming and education.

“Coffee is the breath of the people in Gayo. Coffee is everything to us, it’s our existence,” said Ibu Rahmah, Kopepi Ketiara’s founder.

Worldwide, only 20 to 30% of all coffee farmers are female. This imbalance means many women are left out of the opportunity to earn a living and become financially independent.

Ms. Rahmah started Kopepi Ketiara more than 25 years ago with a focus on teaching women how to run their own sustainable coffee practices. She uses her experience as the daughter of a coffee farmer to help fellow farmers thrive. Today, thanks to her commitment, 70% of the organization’s more than 1,000 members are women.

Along with being paid well above market rate for their coffee, each member of Kopepi Ketiara has access to workshops on how to make organic fertilizers, properly maintain their equipment, and rejuvenate their farms. The cooperative even provides them with university scholarships so they can advance their education.

By incentivizing shade-grown coffee farming, Kopepi Ketiara is also helping protect the local rain forest and its endangered wildlife, which includes Sumatran orangutans, elephants, tigers, and rhinoceros.

We’re excited to deliver this delicious and inspiring batch of coffee right to your doorstep.
