From the Ketiara Cooperative in the Bener Meriah highlands of Sumatra that also produces the Adsenia (TimTim) variety, one of the oldest surviving coffee varieties in Aceh, this coffee helps you tackle the madness of the day as a face-slapping and tongue-dancing dark roast. Many of the producers are women who unfortunately lost their husbands in the 2003 civil war and have persevered in a male dominated industry. It is the desire of the farmers in the Adsenia villages to continue producing this unique variety so that they can support the widows and children and help provide for their future.
