If conscious consumerism is important to you, this blend of fair trade coffee is the one for you. From No Six Depot, the Seck-Sie blend consists of beans harvested from a women's co-operative established by Ibu Rahmah in the Takengon Highland forests located in the Aceh region of Indonesia. The co-op (Koperasi Pedagang Kopi Ketiara) has operated a family-run coffee business for over two decades, becoming both fair trade and organic in 2012. The Koperasi Pedagang Kopi Ketiara co-op also runs programs relating to health, education and community infrastructure.

The fair trade coffee is roasted in the Berkshires, Massachusetts. The Sumatra Ketiara Organic combines light, medium and dark roasts in one blend in order to bring out different characteristics.
