Description

This is an organic coffee that packs a caffeine punch, due to its high percentage of Hibrido de Timor, or Tim Tim. Timor coffee shares many traits of other Indonesian coffees, but is lower grown and is wet-processed at a washing station rather than being wet-hulled, as coffees are usually found in Sumatra.

East Timor is not well-known as a coffee growing country, but they have been growing coffee since the 1860’s, when first introduced by the Portuguese. It’s their only cash crop that is exported, and they do not produce a large quantity. In the early 20th century, a naturally occurring hybrid was discovered, a cross between robusta and arabica (as unlikely as a dog and cat having babies together) which is highly disease-resistant and has a higher caffeine content than other Arabica plants.

Hibrido de Timor has found its way into many new cultivars due to its disease resistance, giving us the catimor and sarchimor varieties as well as others.

    Great beans for the morning’s first cup. Bold, but not overpowering, not bitter. I’ve not had beans from this part of Asia before but will be sure to look for more.
