The Cooperativa Cafe Timor(CCT) works with very small farms in East Timor,majority own less than a hectare of land. The CCT was established in 1994 with the help of USDA and NCBA. 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.The coffee of East Timor was originally planted over 400 years ago by Portuguese colonists.However after an epidemic of coffee leaf rust, the replanting of coffee plants occurred, which led to the creation of a new coffee varietal- Hibrido de Timor.. This FTO coffee from the Maubesse region is wet processed and sun dried.
Spicy, herbal cup with good acidity and excellent body.
