About This Coffee
This coffee comes from smallholders in the villages of Duhoho & Lacau, southwest of the capital city of Dili. The region where these villages are located, Ermera, is responsible for half of the country's coffee production. Steep highlands are covered in wild coffee forests which give ample canopies of shade to these coffee trees.

Duhoho and Lacau farmers pay meticulous attention to hand-pick only fully ripe coffee cherries and remove defects. The harvest finishes just after lunch to process all the picked cherries within the same day. The harvested cherries will then go through a floater selection to eliminate insect damaged beans, followed by a de-pulping (wet-processing) with a traditional pulping machine owned by each farmer. After the pulp is removed, coffee bean parchments are removed again with a floater selection and fermented for 36 hours. Parchments are then washed off, and beans are sun-dried on drying tarpaulins.
