Our coffee comes from the mountainous Ermera district, southwest of the capital, Dili. The coffee grows on misty slopes but requires heavy shade to resist the scorching sun of the long dry season. The farmers are organized into 15 rural grower cooperatives, that sell to the national cooperative federation, CCT. The federation processes and sells the coffee to us under Fair Trade terms, resulting in a significantly higher price ending up directly in the hands of the farmers.
'Este cafÃƒÂ© e optimo!' - This coffee is great!
'Tem um rabo cumpridou'- You have a long tail.
