About the cooperative

With a rich earthy flavour and a smooth creamy finish, our Oxfam fair East Timor coffee is one of our most popular.

The beans are sourced from Cooperativa Café Timor (CCT); certified in 2001, it is the only Fairtrade certified coffee cooperative in East Timor. CCT is a major employer in the region and plays a significant role in the country’s development providing employment and support for its 21,000+ members.

With high mortality rates in East Timor, Health care is CCT’s main priority.

Members have used their Fairtrade premium to...


    • > Provide more efficient and accessible healthcare, including hospitals and mobile clinics.
  • > Provide free mulch and coffee seedlings for farmers who have lost their crops due to political unrest or weather events.

> Create thousands of jobs for locals throughout all stages of production and transport.

However, there is an ongoing need to improve infrastructure, provide agricultural tools, support women’s programs and tackle climate change.

With every purchase of Oxfam fair East Timor coffee, you can help us support CCT together.
