This means the coffee is produced using no child labour and with restrictions on herbicides and pesticides. It also means the final exporter is a paid a price premium.

    This is a delightfully smooth, full-bodied and complex coffee, with a delicious floral aroma, citrusy orange snap and delicate chocolate flavours. It is superb both black or with milk.

    Facts

    Shade-grown in the Peruvian Andes at an altitude of 1600-1800 metres amongst the most beautiful flora and fauna of the Tambopata Valley, this coffee is traditionally farmed and produced without the use of pesticides or chemicals. The coffee beans are first fed and washed by pure spring waters and then harvested by hand by local indigenous Quechuan and Aymara speaking families who have worked the area for generations in harmony with the land. The farmers enjoy the benefits of working as a cooperative which provides much-needed annual funds and training on how to organically enhance farming conditions as well as providing a stable market for their coffee and a guarantee that a fair price will always be achieved.

    This coffee has won several awards: in 2013 it came second out of 51 entries in the Rainforest Alliance's Cupping for Quality, held at the Speciality Coffee Association of America (SCAA) Lab in Long Beach California. In 2012 it was one of the best coffees of the year in the Roasters Guild Competition. It won first place in the National CafA expo awards in Lima and was the coffee used by the third place winner in the UK barista final.

    Takengon is a remote town situated in the region of Aceh, deep in the Gayo Highlands of northern Sumatra. It is an area famed for coffee production: the highlands are the largest producing area of Arabica in Indonesia, with a vast area of 84,000 hectares planted in three districts - Aceh Tengah, Bener Meriah and Gayo Lues. It has beautiful scenery, and is known for the lush mountainous terrain that surround small fishing communities around the landmark of Lake Taut Tawar, at around 1100 metres above sea level.

    In the rural areas that lie north-west of the lake is Lampahan, a small coffee producing town that sits between 1300 and 1400 masl. There are 372 smallholder producers in the area, each cultivating coffee on farms an average size of 1 hectare each. Varieties grown include Catimor, Caturra and Timor Hybrid (also known as "Tim Tim"). A shade canopy and companion planting of staple food crops is found throughout the area, along with diverse indigenous wildlife.

    Taste

    Coffees from Sumatra are known for their balanced and intense smooth, sweet body. This Fairtrade certified Gegarang is deep and full-bodied with a tangerine sweetness layered with heavy chocolate. We recommend this one rests for a few days after roasting to ensure the flavours are allowed to develop.

    Facts

    The history of Gegarang village was part of the Indonesian transmigration program that brought many Javanese people initially to the northern region of Aceh around Lake Tawar to reduce the over population of Java during the 1980s. The village has 46 members who grow their organic coffee on plots of around one hectare at an altitude of 1,500 to 1,600 metres above sea level; other crops include potatoes and beans. Gegarang village is only 4 kilometres from Jagong and is situated between Takengon and Lake Tawar.

    Coffee was planted in Sumatra by Dutch colonialists in the late 1600s under the guidance of the Dutch East India Trading Company. With Europe's ever-increasing thirst for coffee at that time this commodity played an important role in the trade of Indonesia, as indeed it does today.
