“Fabula” means story. We believe every bean has a story to tell, connected to the regions, history, environments, and their farmers. Here is the story of our Timor-Leste offering:

The small island of Timor (in Southeast Asia) has played an significant role in the development of coffee around the world to this day, in spite of a tiny population of only around 1 million people.

Coffee was first introduced to Timor through European colonists and traders. Unfortunately, most of the coffee produced in Timor until the 1970's was the result of large plantation owners who hired poor farmers to work their land, rather than the farmers working independently. As a result, coffee cultivation did not spread widely to independent smallholder farmers until the early 21st century.

In 2002 Timor-Leste gained international independence and coffee cultivation began again as a cash crop for many poor farmers, and a way to gain independent farming. Today, Timor-Leste's coffee sector is growing and through recent investments from coffee companies and non-profit development organizations, the future seems more promising than ever before.

So how does such as small island play such a large part in the industry? It's in Timor that Robusta and Arabica plant types spontaneously breed, creating the now world-famous "Timor Hybrid." This Timor Hybrid has flavor qualities of Arabica coffee, while retaining the natural resistance to disease and pests that Robusta is famous for.

The Timor Hybrid has been used around the world to create a multitude of new coffee varieties. While most people talk about Ethiopian or Colombian coffee and their merits, maybe we should all be paying more attention to Timor?

This coffee was produced by the Cooperativa Cafe Timor, an organization that works directly with smallholder farmers. These independent smallholder farmers have produced a truly extra-ordinary bean, with these note experiences:

Aromas: Dark Chocolate, Prune, Dates, Vanilla, Apple, Cedarwood
Flavor notes: Sticky Dates, Apple, Milk Chocolate, Vanilla

We are very proud of this unique coffee, from a very special part of the world. It will sell out fast with limited quantities – so get yours now 😊
