On the tiny island of Timor, over seven thousand small farmers work to provide Organic Timor Fair-Trade Coffee. The island is split in two, with Indonesia claiming the west side and East Timor, a small independent nation, inhabiting the rest. Gourmet coffee from Timor is unique because virtually all of the farmers grow organic coffee. However, since the coffee is grown on small farms, the farmers have banded together into 16 cooperatives and 494 small-scale farmer groups to improve their production capacity. This way, they can work together to operate the mills necessary to wet-process the small, greenish-yellow coffee beans they produce.
Harvested during the North American summer and exported during autumn, Timor coffee is freshly imported. It's shade-grown coffee from the Cooperativa Café Timor, established in 2000. The cup is spicy and herbal, with good acidity and an excellent body. We know you'll love Organic Timor Fair-Trade Coffee!
