'Koko' is a classic example of a top-quality Sumatran coffee.
Our tasting notes: Rich and smooth with black cherry and chocolate.
A well balanced and versatile cup.

The Kokowagayo co-operative was founded by an all-female group of coffee producers who weren’t being properly represented in a mixed-gender co-op.

The women separated their coffee from the men’s in 2014 and began the first women-only coffee cooperative in Sumatra. In 2015 they joined the Cafe Feminino Foundation.

Finding their voices unheard at a mixed-gender cooperative, the women of the Kokowagayo cooperative separated their coffee from the men’s in 2014 and began the first women-only cooperative in Sumatra. The women decided they would make more community-focused decisions than the men when deciding where to allocate the price premiums they would receive for the hard work they had put into producing speciality coffee.

In 2015 the women of Kokowagayo started the Café Femenino Sumatra Program to further drive women controlled funds to their families and communities, and to nurture space where women can share their ideas and wield exclusive decision-making power.

Koko is their coffee - we’re proud and excited to be sharing their hard work with you.
