15 Local Farmers - Simao Pedro de Deus (Lead Farmer)
Typica & Timor Hybrid
Timor-Leste is the world’s second youngest nation-state and still finding its feet in the geopolitical world of the 21st century. Coffee was introduced to the island by the Portuguese and went on to become the country’s leading export by the 1900s, however, the industry suffered greatly during the years of Indonesian annexation when the sector was largely ignored. Fast forward to the present day and you will see that the coffee farmers of Timor-Leste are working hard to collectively carve out a place for Timorese coffee in the global speciality coffee market.
Timorese coffee is truly wild and organically grown underneath the imposing shade trees that dominate the landscape. With time old traditions in processing coffee passed on from generation to generation.
The village of Eratoi is located at an altitude of 1800masl, an ideal height at which to cultivate and process coffee. Led by Simao Pedro de Deus, these 15 smallholder farmers have extensive experience in quality coffee processing and have consistently produced some of the finest quality speciality coffee in East Timor during the last few years.
