Roastmaster's Select Club: Timor-Leste

Once a month, members of the Roastmaster’s Select Coffee Club have the opportunity to sample unique micro-lot coffees from around the world. “What is a micro lot,” you ask? Read up on how we source the beans and what happens when they reach our roastery.

Following the harvest cycle, Roastmaster’s Club Members have exclusive access to these one-of-a-kind coffees at their peak freshness, and now it’s your turn!

This month we're sharing our Timor-Leste coffee grown in Indonesia by the Café Brisa Serena Association and roasted here at Thanksgiving Coffee in Fort Bragg, CA.

Timor-Leste: coffee from Indonesia
