Where is it from?


Leubasa is produced by 14 smallholders who reside in Leubasa village in the south-west of Asia’s newest independent country, East Timor. The farms of Leubasa village are located at an altitude of between1700-1900 metres above sea level which makes the village one of the highest altitude coffee growers in East Timor. Access to the village from capital Dili is extremely difficult during the wet season but thanks to the recent investments in the infrastructure, overall living conditions of coffee growers have started to improve

Being led by Senhor Cipriano da Conceicao Soares, Leubasa members pay a great degree of attention to harvest only the fully ripe cherries and avoid contamination of defective ones. Only fully ripe cherries are hand-picked and the harvest finishes just after lunch to process all the cherries within the same day. All the harvests of the day go through a floater selection to eliminate insect damaged beans followed by a de-pulping (wet-processing) with a traditional pulping machine that each farmer possess. After the cherries are removed, parchments are sorted again with a floater selection and fermented for 36 hours. Parchments are then washed, sun-dried on drying tarpaulins.

The coffee is then transported to the capital and port town of Dili. All the green coffee beans are then sorted with the colour sorter and by hand. The green coffee beans are then packed in Ecotact bags and jute bags to be exported.
