Rotutu | East Timor
It was in 1995, towards the end of Indonesian rule in Timor-Leste, that Francisco de Deus inherited his farm from his grandparents. Nestled high in the mountains of the central highlands of the country in the district of Ermera, conditions are ideal for coffee harvesting with warm, blue skies during the day and cool evenings at night allowing for consistent growing and processing conditions. Francisco recalls, ‘I always knew that I would one day return to work in Letefoho to work on the family farm and it was not long after I took over harvesting responsibilities from my grandfather that more coffee exporters came to Timor-Leste. This motivated many farmers to once again look to coffee as a potential sustainable source of income’.

I was really excited to try this one after Sarah's recommendation and after reading the bio on the Roast Lab website! It's been a lovely coffee to drink with a really smooth chocolately flavour. Would definitely recommend!

The coffee is always freshly roasted and an absolute pleasure in the mornings, love it!
I’ve had a Rotuto previously, so delighted to discover this one in stock from Roastlab - Really nice, smooth toffee/chocolate flavours.
