The local climate can make coffee production tricky, between arid weather and a short rainy season there are many challenges to overcome. Timor-Leste has also endured a tumultuous socio-political history, and coffee has helped in the growth of the nation’s economy, creating freedom for local business to grow.
This coffee is a natural process, where the cherries are laid on raised beds to sundry, for up to 28 days. The result is a unique flavour of vanilla and caramelised fruits, with a full and sweet mouthfeel.
We love this coffee cos’: It’s always good to share coffee with our neighbours! We’re excited for the future of specialty coffee in Timor-Leste.
Our Glee family has roasted this coffee to suit both espresso/filter applications. We've partnered with our friend and budding Central Coast artist, Jolie Samways for this seasonal design. (@joliesgallery)
