Fair Trade & Organic from Sumatra

Queen Ketiara

After working in coffee for many years, Ramah helped found Ketiara in 2009 with just 38 members and currently serves as the co-op’s chairperson — now expanded to nearly 2,000 smallholder farmers, over 50% of them being women.

The coffee Equator purchases is exclusively from the women members of the co-op; they refer to this special selection as Queen Ketiara.
