Sumatra Kopepi Ketiara Cooperative

The Kopepi Ketiara Cooperative is located in the Gayo Highlands, district of Takengon and Bener Meriah, Central Aceh, Sumatra. All of the farms that contribute to the cooperative produce 100% shade-grown coffee. The average farm size is about 1.2 hectares per member, and a large percentage of members are women. This inspired the cooperative to form a kind of "junior" group, an affiliated association of women members whose coffees are kept separate and sold as Ipak Bensu. Ketiara Cooperative was founded in 2009 by farmer and former coffee collector (or"broker") Ibu Ramhah, who is the manager and chairperson of the co-op and who has inspired many of the women to band together to market their coffee for a premium. In turn, the women hope to increase their family's access to education and health care, and to invest in their farms to continue to thrive.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
