Having found its sovereignty in 2002, Timor-Leste is one of the world’s youngest countries. As the country finds stability, the development of the agriculture sector is rapidly becoming an important pillar for the structural transformation of the country’s economy.
Coffee is Timor-Leste’s most important crop, and with the end of oil income, improving the coffee sector is of critical importance. Coffee is the second-highest earner for the country after oil, with 37% of households dependent on coffee for income.
Coffee here grows in the forests; shaded, untouched, and organic by default. After being picked the coffee cherries are delivered to the Raimutin mill where staff then float and meticulously hand-sort the cherry, removing all damaged or underripe fruit by eye. This well-sorted harvest is now pulped and fermented for a full 24 hours.
This adds a crisp acidity when roasted light and adds to the uniformity of beans making it easier to brew.
