At Jasper Coffee, we have been roasting East Timor beans since 1998. The earlier lots were from Mt Ramalu, but late in 2000, we moved to the wonderful creamy bodied Maubisse coffee. This coop coffee had more consistency and the quality of flavours elevated. This was achieved by the attention to quality picking, better agronomy practices, and introduction of quality washed processing, along with close attention to the parchment drying.

By 2003, this Maubisse coffee was the first Fairtrade Certified and Organic Certified coffee introduced for roasting to Australia, along with the COOCAFE Fairtrade beans from Costa Rica. Jasper Coffee was the first licenced Fairtrade roaster in Australia and without the initiative of H.A. Bennetts, the Importers, Fairtrade would not be where it has risen today in the Australian market.

This East Timor Maubisse coffee through CCT Coop, is truly the vehicle of Fairtrade in the beginning and today. We have been roasting this unique East Timor Arabusta varietal for all these years, and pleased to have been supporting with our sales of this Fairtrade coffee, some of the poorest people in the World.

With Fairtrade Premium benefits, the Coop has built 8 Medical Care Stations, including a Birthing Center along with 23 mobile medical facilities. These have been used by 2000 people monthly, and now are supported with solar operated mobile phone charging ports to allow full communication with these remote clinics.

    Great for Mochas

    My daily drink is an espresso mocha, and this bean suits very nicely. I have found it works best in espressos, though I could also make a fairly nice cold-brew with it too.

    I love that it is fairtrade and organic too, and the price is better than other coffees of lower quality or ethical value.
