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 that nation’s most vital export.

In Timor-Leste, Raw Marterial's 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.

We are excited to bring you a coffee from the suco (village) of Werema. Cherry from Werema is collected daily and processed at the Atsabe wet mill in Baboe Kraik, situated at 1400MASL. 

This Werema Natural is dried for 3 weeks across a combination of Colombia, Timor-Leste, and African style beds, before being moved to fully shade dried for 3 weeks in Railaco, at much lower altitudes
