With the help of international partners Kape Diem, 1LM and the Australian Government, Project Origin is invested in better equipment and worker training to increase the production of coffees growing in Timor-Leste. Our goals of exponential growth and increasing fair and equal work for coffee producers have made extraordinary head way, and we believe, that with a little bit of love and support, the farmers and communities in these areas will flourish in the world of high quality specialty coffee.We are proud to have been involved in starting up the Orijem Timor project, and as they continue their venture towards our set goals, Project Origin continue to support this extraordinary origin by sharing their lots and stories with roasters around the world.
