East Timor Lacau Village
This organically grown coffee is decadent and deeply rich with tones of dark chocolate, plum, and a hint of earth to complement it's full body.
| This is an Aifu FW grade coffee collected from 23 families in Lacau village, which is south of Ermera and Aileu in the western part of East Timor. Growing altitude at Lacau ranges from 1500 - 1700 masl and varities grown include Hybrid de Timor (Moka) and Typica (Arabe). Pulped parchment is fermented for 24-48 hours before drying on aptios and raised beds.
Coffee plantations were introduced to East Timor in 1815 by the Portuguese. However, many of the Timorese communities were displaced during the Indonesian invasion of 1975. Consequently, much land was abandoned and coffee plantations have since grown wild, thriving in the country's rich mountainous environment.
