The Cristo Liurai Cooperative consists of 13 farmers, all farming between 1500 and 1600masl. The group is led by Luis Santos de Jesus. The cooperative started working with Karst Organics during the 2020 harvest. Karst Organics continue to offer support and training to the community through workshops.
£1 from every bag sold will be donated to The Trussell Trust. You can find out more about the work they do here.
This lot was processed using a traditional washed technique. Cherry is pulped, before being fermented in tanks. The coffee is fully washed before being dried on raised, African drying beds.
Sourced through Karst Organics, who solely work in Timor-Leste. Karst Organics are tightly integrated with the communities they source from, spending six months of the year at origin. Karst Organics operate with full transparency and traceability; farmers were paid $3.00/kg for parchment coffee. This is the third year they have worked with the Cristo Liurai Cooperative, and our second year buying coffee from this farmer group.
