Sumatra Gayo

Full bodied coffee, notes of plum with a dark earthy cocoa  finish.

ABOUT THE ORIGIN AND GROWERS

Sourced from the Koperasi Baitul Qiradh Baburrayyan Cooperative (KBQB) in villages throughout Bener Meriah and Aceh Tengah around Lake Tawar.
Indonesian coffee is known for its strong, rich, earthy flavours, in part due to the traditional ‘Indonesian wet-hulled’ method used to process the coffee.

Sumatra Gayo makes a delicious and satisfying Plunger style coffee.

KBQB Cooperative have implemented several different community development projects, including:
- A micro-finance bank that cooperative members can join
- A land rehabilitation project that focuses on bringing land abandoned during the  conflict back into production. The goal is to distribute 6,000 coffee seedlings over three year
- Farmers can also get loans to purchase weed-whackers, which is popular way to weed in the area
- Farmers can also deposit money in the coop bank. They can withdraw it after 6 months and earn a small percent interest
