Timor-Leste Daurfusu Honey Coffee

Coffee has played a role in Timor-Leste's history, initially introduced by Portuguese traders in the 19th century. Despite early profitability favoring Portuguese landowners and subsequent challenges during periods of colonization and occupation, Timor-Leste has successfully revitalized its coffee sector post-independence in 2002 with international aid. Today, coffee constitutes 80% of the country's total export revenue.

The Daurfusu Farmer Group in Timor-Leste, consisting of 37 members led by Simiao Pedro de Deus – serves as the community leader, focuses on meticulous cherry picking and careful processing to produce high-quality washed coffee. Coffee is the primary income source for the group members. The village lot comprises various small lots, each processed separately on individual farms using traditional methods. Every family harvests their own cherries by hand with care, and pulps them using a custom pulper constructed in the area out of gum wood and hammered tin. To guarantee uniform drying, the residual mucilage and parchment are spread out and dried on tarps. Once dried, the parchment is delivered to the Lutlala washing station, where Simiao and station workers assess and aggregate the produce from Daurfusu Farmer Group members.
