Hutan sees us returning to Gegarang and Jagong in Aceh province, Sumatra, sourcing from a number of smallholders who make up the Ketiara co-operative.

Our tasting notes: Big-bodied and chocolatey, with subtle fruit notes and low acidity.

We love Sumatran coffees for their distinct flavour profile,
Hutan is a fantastic example of  the very best quality coffees we've seen from this region

We’re very proud to be supporting Ketiara who are an incredible force for good in Aceh, where their Hutan Fund is dedicated to protecting the unique forests of Sumatra and the sales of this coffee help to fund their amazing work.

The project is lead by the force of nature that is Rahmah Ketiara; she is very passionate about producing high quality, ethical coffee that's in harmony with the environment. Some of Rahmah’s work involves protecting the Leuser Ecosystem, a large forest in Sumatra that’s the last place on earth where you can find, in the wild, elephants, rhinos, tigers and orangutans - all coexisting in one place. 

The Hutan Fund is purely for the planting of trees. Hutan means forest in Bahasa, you may recognize it from Orangutan because the English language borrows that word from Bahasa when we refer to those apes. Directly translated it means person (orang) of the forest (hutan).
