Roasted into the second crack this Timor is a full bodied earthy coffee. It has tasting notes of baker's chocolate and plum. It pairs well with milk and sugar and makes for a great morning or afternoon coffee. As a cold brew it is smooth and crisp, full of chocolate. We use this as a single origin or blend with a lighter Central American bean.
TIMOR FTO is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Cooperativa Café Timor (CCT), which has more than 20,000 members who live in the Ainaro, Ermera and Lequisa districts of East Timor. Coffee cultivation on East Timor was originally established over 400 years ago by Portuguese colonists but leaf rust destroyed all production until a new coffee varietal called Híbrido de Timor was introduced in the 1900s. Today, the average small producer cultivates coffee on less than one hectare of land. - Royal Coffee
