The newest addition to our Heritage Coffee series, Small Batch No. 3, is now available for purchase!
With notes of cocoa, green pepper, herbs, and citrus, this coffee is a truly delicious way to start your day. More importantly, it has an incredible story — and you have the chance to be a part of it.
The Story Behind Small Batch No. 3
Worldwide, only 20–30% of all coffee farmers are female. This imbalance means many women are left out of the opportunity to earn a living and become financially independent.
In the Gayo Highlands of Sumatra, Indonesia, that statistic is changing for the better. The region is being transformed by the Kopepi Ketiara Cooperative, which teaches women and young producers how to run their own shade-grown coffee farms.
“Coffee is the breath of the people in Gayo. Coffee is everything to us, it’s our existence,” said Ms. Rahmah, the cooperative’s founder.
Along with being paid well above market rate for their coffee, each member of Kopepi Ketiara has access to workshops on how to make organic fertilizers, properly maintain their equipment, and rejuvenate their farms. The cooperative even provides them with university scholarships so they can advance their education.
Each bag of Small Batch No. 3 comes from this special place. Your order supports fair pay for these dedicated farmers, protects the local rain forest they call home, and plants a tree in their community.
The Heritage Coffee Difference
The Arbor Day Foundation started the Heritage Coffee Series a little over a year ago to highlight farmers around the world dedicated to protecting trees. Each batch is produced in a limited quantity and is available for a limited time.
Coffee grown under the shade of the rain forest not only is great for our environment — it also yields a premium flavor and richness noticeable from the first sip.
The passion and dedication put into these batches is truly inspiring. You can read about our previous two producers, Juan de la Cruz Vasquez and David Benitez, below.
