Starting at $6.50 / lb
As low as $5.50 / lb

On the tiny island of Timor, over seven thousand small farmers work to provide Organic Timor Fair-Trade Coffee. The island is split in two, with Indonesia claiming the west side and East Timor, a small independent nation, inhabiting the rest. Gourmet coffee from Timor is unique because virtually all of the farmers grow organic coffee. However, since the coffee is grown on small farms, the farmers have banded together into 16 cooperatives and 494 small-scale farmer groups to improve their production capacity. This way, they can work together to operate the mills necessary to wet-process the small, greenish-yellow coffee beans they produce. The cup is spicy and herbal, with good acidity and an excellent body. It is earthy with deep notes of woody herbs and spices and the mild body finishes with a smooth consistency and a sweet hint of syrup and dark chocolate. .

This is a good earthy rustic coffee. I home roast in a #8 cast iron skillet usually 1-1 1/2 cup of green bean. I roasted this to the start of second crack. I use a 6 cup Chemex to brew. To me the flavor was better as the coffee cooled some.

Yum! A most pleasant surprise! The aroma is rich and fills the kitchen. Sweet, with a floral, buttery/caramel flavor. I also recomend, Papua and Uganda for those who enjoy Timor. Blend them for a surprise :-)

This coffee is slightly sweet and a little zing of spice. I roasted it medium and it grinds nicely for the perfect cup of coffee. It’s a rich and earthy taste for that first cup in the morning that you just want to hold the cup to your face while you smell it, and take that first sip. It’s delicious!
