Timor Leste, Hatuhei, Washed Process

The Story

This crowd-pleasing coffee from East Timor is sourced from 10 family-owned farms organized around Café Brisa Serena (CBS), which operates in in Letefoho sub-district of the Ermera municipality, Timor-Leste. CBS is a social enterprise founded in 2010 with an association of more than 400 small producers. CBS has organized producers to achieve organic certification and to establish best farm management practices. CBS has also provided quality control training with the help of international development aid and increasing premiums from specialty coffee. Producers have also been able to make improvements to processing infrastructure, including the addition of drying structures that have greatly improved their ability to consistently meet quality standards for moisture content and water activity.

Brewing Method Recommendation: Espresso and filter brew are our favorite methods for this unique coffee. It makes for a chocolately, syrupy espresso with some mellow tropical flavors to be found as well. For filter brew manual or automatic drip machine, we think it tastes great at a solid 16:1 water to coffee ratio.
