    Fair Trade Organic Timor

    For those who enjoy stronger, earthier coffee, this organic Timor has a full mild body with good, mid-palate strength.

    The Cooperativa Caf̩ Timor (CCT) works with very small farms in East Timor, majority own less than a hectare of land. The CCT was established in 1994 with the help of USDA and NCBA. In 2001, the coperative obtained Fair Trade Certification. The farms are located throughout Maubesse, an area of high - altitude and a sub - district in the Ainaro district; Atsabe, in the Ermera district; the Lequisa district; and the Aifu region. The coffee of East Timor was originally planted over 400 years ago by Portuguese colonists. However, after an epidemic of coffee leaf rust, the replanting of the coffee plants occurred, which led to the creations of a new coffee varietal - Hibrido de Timor.

    • Cupping Notes: dark chocolate, caramel, syrupy, woody

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    Very tasty. Definitely has chocolate flavor.

    Brewed strong and dark as Turkish grind packed well in a stove-top moka pot.




    This was a birthday gift. The recipient looks forward to his coffees which I carefully choose from Fresh Roasted Coffee. I give him mostly dark roasts, but this time decided to give him a medium in the mix. I wanted Timor because I was born in Indonesia and Fresh Roasted Coffee always beautiful exotic coffees. Our birthday boy reports these coffees are great but didn't let me know which one was his favorite. I will continue to order from this site. They have sales and shipping is reasonable.

    One of My Favorites

    Timor is definitely one of my favorite's from Fresh Roasted Coffee LLC. I have sampled several different varieties (maybe 10 or so) and this has been the only one I have gotten more than once. I typically use a french press with a more finer grind than the recommended and this coffee does amazing. You get a nice big bloom even in the press. Smells and tastes glorious. As with any coffee, it is best right after the grind, so I definitely recommend grinding only what you would need for 1 or 2 days (3 days MAX). Otherwise, the quality does go down. However, I have done some extended grinds and this was still very good even after a week.

    Smooth, consistent coffee


    I love the Timor coffee. I have been purchasing Timor regularly. I find it to be consistently roasted and very smooth. I only wish it could be available in Dark Roast. Love it!!
