About Organic Sumatra Ground Coffee FairTrade,
Full Roasted Sumatran Takengon Ground Coffee. Full Strength 4. This production area was carefully selected for the project due to its inclusion in the buffer zone of the Gunung Leuser National Park, a large forested area that contains critical watershed areas and wildlife sanctuaries for rare and endangered species such as Sumatran tigers, elephants, and orangutans. Work is also being done to develop economic alternatives and incentives for natural resources conservation with other crops such as vanilla, nutmeg, mace, and patchouli oil. Co-op members are small-scale coffee farmers dedicated to producing 100% shade-grown, organic coffee. It has maintained relative peace and unity among an ethnically diverse membership comprised of Gayo, Javanese, Acehnese, Padang, and Batak peoples. Twenty percent of PPKGO's members are women.
