New Arrival: Spotlight On Organic Sumatra Ipak Bensu

We’re so happy with Organic Sumatra Ipak Bensu. At a medium, Full City, roast level the coffee is smooth and silky with classic Sumatran body. The flavor is clean with cocoa richness & tangy citrus brightness made even more complex by pulpy fruit sweetness and a lingering herbal finish. Roasting the coffee darker, results in an even heavier body. The tangy notes turn sweet and the flavor has more cocoa notes and bold complexity.

Organic Ipak Bensu is 100% shade-grown on 970 small farms (approximately 3 acres each) in the Gayo Highlands. The farms are between 4000 and 5500 feet above sea level and all of the farmers are women. In Indonesia, most farms are owned and run by men. Sumatra is different. In Western Sumatra, for instance, property is owned and passed on by the female members of the Minangkabau ethnic group. Though the Gayo Highlands are north and east of the Minangkabau Highlands, women are still very active in coffee production and many own their own farms.

In 2008, a farmer and former coffee broker named Ibu Ramhah started the Kopepi Ketiara Cooperative to help farmers process and market their coffee. The female farmers who grow Organic Sumatra Ipak Bensu are members of the Kopepi Ketiara Cooperative, and the cooperative processes all their coffee. The cooperative also helps the women market their coffee by marketing Organic Sumatra Ipak Bensu separately from coffee grown by other co-op members, earning a premium on their coffee. This increases their families' access to education and health care and also allows them to invest money back into their farms to improve future crops. READ MORE...
