If you are interested in strong, dark and smoky speciality coffee; this is the perfect one for you!
The most famous coffees from Indonesia are those from the island of Sumatra, and are processed as Wet-Hulled, or giling basah, which lends them their characteristic earthy and smoky flavours.
We are proud that our latest Sumatran coffee is our second from the Cafe Femenino association, a collective of female coffee growers whose purpose is to provide greater equality and representation for women coffee farmers across the globe.
You can find our more about this amazing association here!
This classic Sumatran coffee does not hold back, it combines a robust Tobacco and Brown Sugar Cane hit with subtle Ginger spices to create a powerful brew.
Finding their voices unheard at a mixed-gender cooperative, the women of the Kokowagayo cooperative separated their coffee from the men’s in 2014 and began the first women-only cooperative in Sumatra.
These women knew they would make more community-focused decisions than the men when deciding where to allocate the Fair Trade premiums.
To further drive women controlled funds to their families and communities, and to nurture space where women can share their ideas and wield exclusive decision-making power, the women of Kokowagayo started the Café Femenino Sumatra Program in 2015.
Working with our partners to create better prices, decent working conditions, a fairer deal for farmers and sustainable farming.
Our coffees are ethically sourced from green coffee buyers who are committed to excellent coffee, excellent standards and paying their farmers an excellent price. We source, roast, blend and pack the coffee ourselves, to ensure that the coffee makes as few journeys as possible once it has left the farm.
