The Hunda farming community was established in 2009 and 18 farmers contributed to this lot. They work as a team to pick, collect, and process their cherry. The name ‘Hunda’ is derived from two words, ‘Funa’ and ‘Dalan’ which is shorted to ‘Hunda’. According to the community’s elders the word is related to describing the former presence of the Japanese military in the area.
East Timor is recognised more for the varietal ‘hybrid de timor’ than the coffee it has been producing now for 200 years since introduction in 1817 by the Portuguese. The Hybrid De Timor variety is a natural hybrid between the typica & robusta in spotted first in 1927. In the cup they demonstrate a sweetness, delicacy and florals associated with the typica variety (known as Arabi locally) which are then complimented by the spicy pepper, tamarind and full-bodied characteristics that you would be more familiar from the Hybrid De Timor varietal.
