Make sure your seat is in the upright position and your tray table is in the stowed position as we make our decent into Timor Leste today with Flight Coffee. We have been fortunate to have been doubling down on today’s coffee for some time, so we're confident you'll love it too.
Raw Materials’ work in Timor-Leste is truly inspirational and highlights why we love working with these guys and sharing their stories. A true story of how a few passionate people can make a difference. We highly recommend reading more about it here.
Lets go forth and enjoy Atsabe, a washed porcessed coffee from Timor - Leste.
(Words by Flight Coffee) 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. Timor-Leste currently faces enormous economic upheaval, as its oil reserves begin to run dry. In its place, coffee is set to become that nation’s most vital export.
In Timor-Leste, our work is currently focussed namely in the municipality of Ermera. One of thirteen municipalities in the country, it is home to the largest coffee production volumes, whilst almost 60% of the municipality's population live below the poverty line. We are excited to present you coffees from the suco (village) of Parami. Cherry from Parami, and the nearby neighborhoods Motalala and Koileki, is collected daily and processed at the Atsabe wet mill in Baboe Kraik situated at 1400MASL.
