The Chosen Bean – Sumatra Fair-Trade Ketiara Cooperative


About a decade ago, Moshe Ruza began roasting coffee in his backyard. That’s when he became a man obsessed with his hobby and the idea of The Chosen Bean was created.

When Mendy Dalfin moved three doors down, they knew it was fate. By 2014, they were ready to take their love of coffee to the next level. Together they decided to take the coffee world by storm.

What separates us from other coffee companies is not only our attention to detail, but our determination to find unique flavors from small coffee growers around the globe.

We choose our beans after scouring the earth for the freshest, tastiest, organic fair trade beans. Then we roast countless samples before we select The Chosen Bean.

The Koperasi Pedagang Kopi Ketiara is a women-run cooperative that has over 890 grower-members. The Ketiara Cooperative was started in 2008 by Ibu Rahmah, the current chairwoman, who had operated and managed her family’s coffee business for 20 years-purchasing cherries, processing the green, and selling to local traders. The passionate commitment of the women managers to have all members working together in support of coffee production has enabled Ketiara to expand and become an important supplier to larger coffee traders in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra. The cooperative members voted to become organic and Fair-trade certified in 2012, making a commitment to use these proceeds to create programs for health, education, and public infrastructure projects that will benefit all co-op members.
