Medium-to-full body, clean and slightly sweet with notes of brown sugar, dark chocolate and molasses.
Timor Maubesse from the Cooperative Café Timor (CCT) is a top-quality organically grown, fair trade certified Arabica coffee.
Maubesse is a coffee-producing region in East Timor, or Timor-Leste. After Timor-Leste gained its independence from Indonesia in 2000, Cooperative Café Timor (CCT) was organized to market their coffee. Most farmers own less than a hectare (2.47 acres) of land and rely on the cooperative to process and sell their coffee. CCT is both fair trade and organic certified which has brought great benefit to the small farmers through medical, business skills and infrastructure development.
Timor grows the Hibrido de Timor variety of coffee which is a cross between Arabica and Robusta and known for its good resistance towards the coffee leaf rust fungus.
