First East Timor coffee now in Australia

29 November 2010

The first coffee grown, roasted and packed in East Timor has been launched into the Australian market.

Now available through Tradewinds Tea and Coffee, the coffee is supplied by the Co-operativa Café Timor, who have more than 20,000 coffee growing households as members.

While in the past coffee from East Timor was exported as green beans, the new Tradewinds Fairtrade East Timor coffee is both grown and processed, and packed in Dili and is part of a strategy to create more jobs for the East Timorese as well as increased income.

Tradewinds has funded the purchase of equipment required for the coffee processing.

“When you drink a cup of Tradewinds Fairtrade East Timor coffee not only will you enjoy a fine brew, you’ll be helping this new nation to build its own future,” said Dr David Lloyd, director of Tradewinds and also a senior Lecturer of Southern Cross University.

“This is part of our strategy of giving a hand-up not a hand-out. It supports people to develop skills and pride in their own communities rather than putting their hands out for help.”

Dr Lloyd and another Tradewinds director, Professor Brett Inder of Monash University, are engaged in a three year AusAID funded study to determine the social and economic impacts of existing coffee production processes and market access on household incomes in Timor-Leste.
