Timor Organic Fair Trade

The Cooperativa Café Timor (CCT) works with very small farms in East Timor, majority own less than a hectare of  land. The CCT was established in 1994 with the help of  USDA and NCBA. In 2001, the coperative obtained Fair Trade Certification. The farms are located in Maubesse, an area of  highaltitude and a sub-district in the Ainaro district; Atsabe, in the Ermera district; the Lequisa district; and the Aifu region. The coffee of  East Timor was originally planted over 400 years ago by Portuguese colonists. However, after an epidemic of  coffee leaf  rust, the replanting of  the coffee plants occurred, which led to the creations of  a new coffee varietal—Hibrido de Timor.
