Certified Organic. Shade grown in the Highlands of the Aceh province of Sumatra, Indonesia. The Gayo Organic Coffee Farmers Association (PPKGO) is a cooperative with thousands of members who are dedicated to producing high quality certified organic coffee. The Fair Trade price has given the grower members the resources needed to improve the coffee producing infrastructure, promote sustainable agriculture and environmental preservation, and provide training in coffee production.
The coffee is bold and full bodied balanced with a rich woody, earthy cocoa flavor and roasted caramel sweetness. We like this coffee in a darker roast which tends to mellow the acidity and bring out the underlying sweetness. We recommend a Full City to an espresso roast.
