New Harvest Coffee Roasters
Organic Timor Maubesse
|Roaster Location:||Rumford, Rhode Island|
|Coffee Origin:||East Timor|
|Review Date:||December 2003|
Crisp, wine- and cherry-toned fruit dominate in both aroma and cup. A delicate mustiness reads as leather and sweet pipe tobacco. The rather heavy finish lightens and sweetens as the cup cools.
East Timor is recovering from the ravages of its recent war of independence from Indonesia, and its malty, rich, low-key organic coffees are beginning to reappear on the market. Maubesse is a grade name. Shade-grown and certified organically grown. New Harvest is a quality-oriented small batch roaster specializing in organic and Fair-Trade coffees. Visit
