Timor Leste Letefoho Haupu

$12

Product Description

 

"This beautiful coffee comes from a Sukus (village) called Haupu. Coffee produced here is amongst some of the best we have seen in East Timor. The elevation here is slightly lower, which means that this is one of the first specialty lots that we get to taste every year. The resting period plays a huge role in coffee production and attributes to a more balanced profile, when we’re cupping new crop samples from across the country. The variety cultivated is predominantly Typica, which has locally been nicknamed “Arabi”."

This Timor Leste Letefofo is an amazingly delicious espresso style coffee. We have roasted it to ensure great development making sure all the innate flavours are accessable in a well prepared cup of coffee. We are excited to partner with MTC Group who import this coffee as they have similar passions and goals for ethical specialty coffee.

This Haupu bean is outstanding through creamy textured milk, as well as complex when brewed through a batch brewer or aeropress. It is also organically grown in rich loamy soils of Timor where the local coffee growers are now getting paid at least double the standard fairtrade premium! We'll drink to that!

"We have recently teamed up with a NGO that's been working in region since the end of the civil war in 2001. The NGO's initial objective was to deliver humanitarian aid and basic services though eventually their role evolved into rural development work with a strong emphasis on improving livelihoods in coffee growing communities.

Initial investments were channeled into education, training, basic inputs and infrastructure such as new trees, pulpers, drying tarps, etc. From here, the NGO began assisting the development of farmer groups, cooperative structures and micro-financing solutions; all of which is vitally important for small-holder farmers. With these new organized, financed and equipped farmer groups, farmers could now look beyond the less lucrative internal markets."

-Harrison Koch, MTC Group
