The History of Coffee in Timor-Leste goes back to the 18th Century when the Portuguese introduced Coffee to the Island Nation.
The island produces both Washed Arabica and Robusta coffees which grows at altitudes above 1,000 m under towering shade trees. With the combination of high altitude, great shade, cool microclimate and a pristine natural environment this wild coffee has shown great potential and with the right efforts can become the source of unique specialty grade coffees.
Coffee is primarily grown in the high land area on the west side of the country in 6 different districts. Main growing area being Ermera, Aileu, Ainaro, Liquica. This lot is a washed coffee from Ermera district.
