Ketiara is a women-led cooperative in Aceh in the Gayo highlands who are led by a woman with over 25 years experience in the coffee trading dedicated to supporting coffee producing families in the region. Ketiara celebrates in promoting women within the coffee business. Mainly producing high quality, shade and organically grown Arabica in the forested mountains of the Leuser National Park with special attention paid to the protection of the local ecosystem. The complex cup profile is a testament to the care taken in growing, harvesting and processing. Bursting with flavour, expect a bright and bold cup with a strong dark chocolate aroma and a low acidity with some tropical fruit and apple on the finish. Suitable for all brewing methods, we particularly enjoy this coffee as a flat white or black filter.
Winner of a 2 Star Great Taste Award in the Espresso Category and a 1 star in the Cafetiere/Filter Category in 2021. The judges said "The degree of complexity is admirable and brings in suggestions of rose water and the burnt sugar of a crème caramel. This is a very well produced coffee."
