- Sumatra Single-Origin Fair-Trade Ketiara Cooperative - Medium Roast Coffee
The Koperasi Pedagang Kopi Ketiara is a women-run cooperative that has over 890 grower-members. The Ketiara Cooperative was started in 2008 by Ibu Rahmah, the current chairwoman, who had operated and managed her family’s coffee business for 20 years-purchasing cherries, processing the green, and selling to local traders. The passionate commitment of the women managers to have all members working together in support of coffee production has enabled Ketiara to expand and become an important supplier to larger coffee traders in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra. The cooperative members voted to become organic and Fair-trade certified in 2012, making a commitment to use these proceeds to create programs for health, education, and public infrastructure projects that will benefit all co-op members.

I am so glad I was introduced to The Chosen Bean coffee brand a few weeks ago. I truly love coffee but like everything I drink or eat, I am looking for higher taste and quality over quantity or discounted prices. I really savor their single origin coffee from Sumatra or Kenya with my French press. The staff is dedicated and personal. I like the idea of supporting a family and local company in South Florida. I can't go back to Starbucks after this !

This is my coffee group hands down favorite. The coffee is smooth with bold earthy flavor at all temperatures. First taste, very hot or very cold they all are satisfying. We experiment with different coffees and we like the them. We always come back to Sumatra. Medium roaster with very low acid and bold flavor, it is GREAT.
