Product Description

    Details

     

    Coffee from the Malay Archipelago is known for its exceptional qualities, a smooth cup with distinctive flavors and notes of herbs and spice.

    “This coffee has these nice dark chocolatey flavors and notes of wild cardamom,” said Mackenzie Karr from Starbucks Coffee team. “It is balanced and approachable, a very drinkable cup that shows up nicely in a variety of brewing methods both hot and iced.”

     

    Like most small-holder coffees from the Malay Archipelago, East Timor coffees are grown without chemicals, but Timors have the advantage of being internationally certified as organic. They are wet-processed at recently established wet mills or washing stations. Buying a Timor coffee at this moment in history means making a small but valuable gesture of support for one of the many peoples of the world caught up in sectarian and political conflict.

     

    In terms of taste, most current versions of Timor are typical for small-holder wet-processed coffees from the islands of the Malay Archipelago: Low-key, sweet, with a musty pungency that can range from soft and intriguing to hard and oppressive. However, the very best and cleanest-tasting Timors can be extraordinary: full, round, smooth, sweet, and deliciously cocoa-toned. These coffees, already promising, may continue to improve as the first decade of the millennium unfolds.

    Preferred Preperation

    Which is the best way to prepare coffee?

    We have no prescribed brewing method for individual coffees, since their characteristics remain.  Plunger/French Press is the purest form of consuming coffee as it shows up all traits, good and bad.  Espressos tend to mask certain impurities as this is a fast, creamy, romantic extraction.  Adding milk changes the taste but 95% of coffee is drunk with milk.

    Whatever tastes good for you is all that counts.

    Our coffee comes in 250g pouches with clear front (to show off the quality of our beans) and metallic back.

    Pouches have zip locks for your convenience

    Since we roast daily only the amount of coffee we sell, so you are assured of freshness.

    We use roasting date labels in stead of sell-by dates

    Coffee has a half life of 2 weeks. After two months the oils start going rancid and your coffee has reached the end of its life. 

    Your old coffee grinds can be tossed into the compost.

    Tips to ensure a delicious cup

    So now that you have chosen a good quality coffee, remember that there are still a number of ways to really mess up your final cup.  Here are a few more boxes to tick:

    • Always use fresh clean water.
    • Store coffee in an airtight container and consume within 2 months.
    • Do not boil your water and definitely never ever re-heat brewed coffee.
    • Use clean equipment.
