East-Timor Goulala is grown at an altitude of 1450 to 1600 meters giving the Arabica a denser, more defined flavor. The beans are all handpicked and are hand-selected in a process that removes all imperfect cherries. This level of dedication results in a uniform, high-quality selection.
The product, the labor, and the profits are all local. This means that all beans are grown close to the village, inside the rainforest, in small ‘micro-plots’.
Fun fact: the rainforest canopy covers these micro-plots. This way, the topsoil is much healthier, and the beans get better nutrition. Healthy farming for both the people and the forest!
