Timor - Organic
Our Timor is a crowd favorite, when available ! Luckily we have a good stock this year.
Timor is very much a blend of 2 worlds, that being said it, the coffee is grown in Indonesia which has the influences of the climate and terroir but it is processed the same as most Central American coffee, using the washed processed method. Essentially meaning that Timor has the flavours similar to Bali, Sumatra and Java but the clean cup of Costa Rica, Mexico and Brazil.

The Cooperativa Cafe Timor (CCT) works with very small farms in East Timor; most land owners own less than a hectare of land. The CCT was established in 1994 with the help of the USDA and NCBA. and in 2001, the cooperative obtained Fair Trade certification. The farms are located in Maubesse, an area of high altitude and a sub-district in the Ainaro district; Atsabe, in the Ermera district; the Lequisa district; and the Aifu region. The coffee from East Timor was originally planted over 400 years ago by Portuguese colonists. However, after an epidemic of coffee leaf rust, the replanting of plants occurred and led to the creation of a new coffee varietal of Hibrido de Timor.
