    Roaster’s Notes
    East Timor 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. CCT was established in 1994 with the help of the USDA and he NCBA (National Cooperative Business Association) to help small producers market their coffee internationally. Through a free healthcare initiative, CCT has funded the operation of seven rural clinics, three mobile clinic teams and eleven community healthcare teams that have treated more than two million patients since 2001 This medium roast, full bodied coffee will keep you warm and cozy this season with aromas of dark chocolate, tobacco and dried fig. The well balanced, low acidity of this coffee compliments the decadent, bold flavors of dark chocolate, tobacco, caramel, and roasted marshmallow. A sweet, lingering finish of cocoa powder, caramel and dried fig with hints of earthiness throughout, beckons just one more cup before you start your day.
