Farmer-focused and origin-based exporter and importer of speciality arabica coffee beans from Timor-Leste

About Karst

TRUSTED BY 50+ ROASTERS IN UK & EUROPE

WHY TIMOR?

Timor-Leste is an ecologically preserved origin where the land, the people and their culture are all intrinsically linked. This is what makes the coffee and its story so special.

OUR PARTNERS & THEIR COFFEES

We work directly alongside our partner farmers across 7 different communities during every harvest to provide support and ensure that their coffees are processed to the highest standards.

TRANSPARENT BUYING PRACTICES

As both exporter and importer, we are shortening the links in the supply chain allowing us to pay more to our partner farmers and sell at a more competitive price to partner roasters.

OUR WORK AT ORIGIN

Integration, education and collaboration: at the heart of our philosophy is the necessity for investment in infrastructure and farms whilst also prioritising training programmes as key to improve knowledge and ultimately coffee quality.
