Although this is our first year to offer an individual coffee from Samoro, we have been working closely with Orlando (lead farmer of Samoro) and the other members of the group for three years. Having previously collaborated as part of the Cristo Liurai group, our observations from continuous cuppings throughout this year’s harvest led us to believe that there was a sufficient difference in cup profile to warrant an opportunity to showcase their coffee separately. This thinking was reinforced by the fact that due to Samoro’s location being more easterly (when comparing with Cristo Liurai’s location), this community experiences warmer ambient temperatures which in turn results in warmer water during processing. This allowed for more concentrated fermentation which we believe has produced a coffee featuring slightly bolder flavour notes.

The breathtaking island of Timor-Leste has mountainous regions which sit in the central and eastern parts of the country. Timor-Leste’s tropical climate and fertile volcanic soils which are rich in minerals are ideal for coffee cultivation. Timorese coffee is truly wild and grows organically underneath the imposing shade trees that dominate the landscape. With time old traditions in processing coffee, passed on from generation to generation, coffee is helping to create more opportunities for Timorese people with a consistent and sustainable income.
