It's all in the Brewing

The Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste (more commonly known as East Timor) is a small tropical island nation situated in South East Asia. It gained its independence on the 28th November 2002 and became the first new country of this millennium after more than 4 centuries of Portuguese colonisation and 25 years of Indonesian occupation.

East Timor lies approximately 700km to the north of Darwin, Australia, but feels a million miles away from its prosperous and affluent neighbour. With the assistance of international aid, local NGOs and certain factions of the private sector, capacity building has been identified as an essential focus to facilitate the Timorese people in developing their country and slowly establishing itself as its own autonomous state after years of unsettlement.

After the volatile oil and gas sector, agriculture is the mainstay economy of East Timor and coffee is the country’s main cash crop and its largest exported good. Coffee plants were first brought to East Timor in the early 19th century by the Portuguese and grow wild in the mountainous regions of the central highland districts flourishing underneath the shade of the natural tree canopies. Well known to be organic by default, East Timor is possibly the only country in the world that produces exclusively organically grown coffee. The Asia Development Bank estimates that coffee is grown by approximately a third of all households who rely on this sector for income.
