This organic, single-origin coffee comes from the Atsabe village in East Timor. A medium roast, this coffee offers notes of chocolate with light acidity. Timor is located between Australia and Sulawesi, where it used to be controlled by Indonesia until a few decades ago. It was then that USAID grants helped to develop the rural economy and create coffee as a cash crop for local growing cooperatives.
Unlike many coffees, Timor's beans are cultivated from a unique cultivar of the coffee plant. Today, the Timor varietal is also grown with the hybrid of a Timor and Caturra bean cross, called the Catimor. These beans keep their unique character through the roasting process, retaining their spicy, full flavor.
