The Cooperativa Cafe Timor works with very small farms in East Timor, most are less than a hectare of land in Maubesse, an area of high altitude. The coffee from East Timor was originally planted over 400 years ago by Portuguese colonists. An epidemic of coffee leaf rust wiped out the plants and with the replanting of plants, the spontaneous creation of a new varietal occured - Hibrido de Timor. The people of Timor continue to rebuild following the devastation of the coffee industry as well as past invasion and occupation by Indonesia and their fight for independence.
