WOMEN IN COFFEE: Ketiara is a women-run cooperative. The Ketiara Cooperative was started by Ibu Rahmah, who had operated and managed her family’s coffee business for 20 years-purchasing cherries, processing the green, and selling to local traders. Many of these producers are women who unfortunately lost their husbands in the 2003 civil war. They have persevered in a male-dominated culture and industry to produce this bold cupping coffee. The cooperative members voted to become organic and Fairtrade 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.
