Having found its sovereignty in 2002, Timor-Leste is one of the world’s youngest countries. As the country finds stability, the development of the agriculture sector is rapidly becoming an important pillar for the structural transformation of the country’s economy.

Timor-Leste currently faces enormous economic upheaval, as its oil reserves begin to run dry. In its place, coffee is set to become the nation’s most vital export.

In Timor-Leste, the work of Raw Material work is currently focussed namely in the municipality of Ermera. One of thirteen municipalities in the country, it is home to the largest coffee production volumes, whilst almost 60% of the municipality's population live below the poverty line. Home to the production of fantastic naturally processed coffees and the purchasing of cherry processed at the Atsabe community wet mill. Zachael, the village chief has been an ambassador for the future of Timor-Leste specialty coffee when discussing the future systems with neighbouring village chiefs and farmers. We are excited to present you a coffee from the suco (village) of Malabe. Cherry from Malabe is collected daily and processed at the Atsabe wet mill in Baboe Kraik, situated at 1400MASL
