THE STORY BEHIND
This lot comes from the female members of the cooperative Kopi Wanita.
Kopi Wanita is a Fairtrade-certified group which grows organic coffee in the Jagong District of Aceh, Sumatra.
Almost 40 percent of Kopi Wanita's members are female, many of them widowed or raising children alone as single parents. Agriculture is the primary source of income for most people in the area, and it is especially difficult for single mothers to tend to both crops and children, in addition to households and community obligations. The co-op hopes that by separating and marketing the women's coffee they will be able to return the profits to training programs for the female members, including farm training and education in other skills that will help them earn a sustainable living.
This coffee lot is semi-washed in the traditional Indonesian method, known as Giling Basah or “Wet-hulled” giving to it an unique bouquet of aromas and flavours. We selected it for its incredible clarity and deepness along with a creamy body, showcasing again the true potential of Indonesian coffees.
