Sumatra Organic Ketiara Adsenia Triple Picked is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Ketiara cooperative, located in the Takengon highlands of the Aceh province on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia.  This region of Indonesia is also referred to as the Gayo land because the coffee farmers are from the Gayonese ethnic group and continue to cultivate Adsenia (TimTim), which is the oldest coffee varietal in Aceh.  A high percentage of farmers, typically from the most remote villages of the Takengon highlands, are widows who lost their husbands during periods of conflict in Aceh.  A women’s organization was recently formed to address the needs of the community, which includes plans to build a health center in the community.  “Triple Picked” means the coffee cherries are hand-sorted three times, as opposed to the standard single or double sorting.  This ensures a better processed coffee with fewer defects, and a cleaner, brighter cup profile.
