Timor is another do-good, feel-good coffee that is gradually becoming taste-good as well.  Over the decades of the 1980s and 1990s East Timor — a former Portuguese colony — underwent a bloody war of resistance to Indonesian occupation, and eventually, at the end of the decade of the 1990s, a brief but even bloodier spasm that led to independence from its much larger neighbor.  Coffee plants were left to grow wild during this period.  During the 1990s international assistance organizations helped the East Timorese revive their once famous coffee industry. 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. 

“We are positioned to promote almost 100% Organic and Natural coffees from plants that grow wild in Timor by bringing in supply chain best practices and quality training at every stage. We are striving to be the best source of specialty coffee from Timor!”  - Chaitanya Varma General Manager Olam East Timor
