Coming from the island nation of Timor-Leste on the east side of the island, this coffee, grown in the Indonesian island set is grown in volcanic soil, which gives it a smooth and earthy flavor. Collected and sent to us by TIMOR FTO, this cooperative joins family farms together from the districts of Ainaro, Ermera, and Lequisa. The organization boasts over 20,000 members from these regions and provides healthcare to the coffee workers in the region, helping over 2 million people at local clinics since 2001. Coffee has been growing on the island for over 500 years when the Dutch brought it over, but this crop is the reintroduced plant after coffee rust destroyed most of the plants in the early 1900s. With notes of lemongrass, lime, and honey, this collective coffee has such a unique flavor and a unique way of providing for others across the globe.
