Having found its sovereignty in 2002, Timor-Leste is one of the world’s youngest countries. Heavily reliant on income from oil, Timor-Leste currently faces enormous economic challenges as these oil reserves begin to run dry. In its place, the agricultural sector and in particular coffee is set to become the nation’s most vital export.
In Timor-Leste, we have sourced coffee from the municipality of Ermera which is the largest coffee producing region in the country. Almost 60% of the municipality’s population live below the poverty line.
This Parami Natural lot came second in the 2019 Timor-Leste national coffee quality competition, with a mean average final score of 87.56 across the panel of international judges. Cherry is collected daily from the village of Parami to be transported for processing at the Atsabe wet mill in Baboe Kraik where they are laid to sun dry as whole cherry for 3 weeks across a combination of different style drying beds after which they are moved to covered shade drying at Railaco at much lower altitudes for another 3 weeks.
You may have noticed that we have stopped labelling some coffees as “Filter Roast Profile”. We felt that our previous labelling of microlots did not do justice to our coffees and what we think they are capable of. We want you to feel free to use the coffee any way you like. Read more here.
