A few weeks before we left Seattle, I was hearing rumors about a sun dried coffee from East Timor. My interest was piqued.
At that time, Reserve stores were featuring an East Timor peaberry from Cooperative Café Timor (CCT). This coffee comes from the same cooperative, a collaboration between Starbucks and CCT. Starbucks wondered what a natural processed coffee from East Timor would taste like, and the result is a powerhouse of fruit flavors highlighting pineapple and black cherry
East Timor Red made it’s debut at the Roastery exactly one week after I moved away. However, I am so thankful for my friend Melody, who keeps me up to date with all of the Roastery exclusives! Thank you, Melody. I couldn’t do this without you 🙂
