Gayo Lauser Antara Cooperative was formed in July 2015 with a total of 466 members,399 male and 67 female. As all members adhere to organic practices, the concept of organic farming will continue to be maintained and developed by all farmers and cooperative leaders. The total combined coffee production areafor this coop is roughly 640 hectares.
All of the members of Gayo Lauser Antara Cooperative live in the highlands ofJagong and Berawang in the Central Aceh district. Most members arevictims of the conflict which was occurred one decade ago in Jagong Jeget. The elevation of the region is 1450-1600 maslwith volcanic fertile soil.
This cooperative was formed due to a strong desire to improve the welfare of members in order to be able to lead a better life. This group strivesto producehigher quality coffee as they understand this will directly increase the quality of life for themselves. There is a very strong spirit of "togetherness" among cooperative members. As they are a relatively new group, the Gayo Lauser Antara Cooperative hopes to consistently increase the quality of their coffee by maintaining clean, organic practices and expanding more and more into the international coffee market.
