• The Permata Gayo Cooperative was formed in 2006 by 50 coffee farmers in the Aceh region after an earthquake and tsunami devastated much of the local farmland.
• The purpose of the cooperative was to kick-start production again with a focus on organic farming to boost health and raise money.
• Today Permata Gayo has over 2,500 members, producing 100% organic Fair Trade Certified coffee.
• Fair Trade premiums are used to purchase agricultural tools and weeding materials, and invest in environmental education.
• There are programs focusing on women’s empowerment, including employment initiatives and specialized medical services.
• Sumatran coffee is semi washed, or “wet hulled”, giving beans more body and enhancing their distinct character.
