The coffee comes from a cooperative owned by 10 small farmers who each own one hectare of land. The cooperative is located in the Gayo Mountains at 1,200 to 1,600 meters above sea level and near Lake Laut Tawar. The region is very popular among Frahling lovers and is known for its very high-quality and spicy-sweet coffees.
The farmers produce about 8 tons of green coffee per harvest, which is classified as speciality coffee. The cooperative sells the coffee directly to a trading partner in Switzerland. Farmers receive several times the fair-trade price for their coffee. The coffee is grown according to ecological standards, without pesticides and in a high bio-diversity area.
