TIMOR ORGANIC FAIR TRADE (MEDIUM-DARK)
Our March Coffee of the Month is a washed Timor from the CCT cooperative in East Timor. This coffee has two distinct personalities depending on the temperature. When it is piping hot, it is bold and earthy in the front and has some sweetness in the finish. As this coffee cools a bit, the earthy notes mellow out significantly and it becomes nutty with much more sweetness. Our team pointed out notes of hazelnut, chocolate, oat milk, and maple syrup as the cup began to cool.
Roast Color: Medium-Dark
Cupping Notes: Lemongrass, Oat Milk, Hazelnut
Story: This Indonesian coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Cooperativa Café Timor (CCT), which has more than 20,000 members in East Timor. CCT was established in 1994 with the help of the USDA and the 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.
