Liberty Coffee is proud to be a part of the 2nd Festivál Kafé Timor (FKT) – Celebrating Timorese coffee from bean to cup. Our chief roaster, Terence, is among a great panel of international judges for the FKT's 2017 Cupping Competition. He is seeking delicious coffees to bring home to Singapore.

The Timor-Leste Coffee Association (ACTL) and East Timor Development Agency (ETDA) are concurrently hosting the inaugural Barista Championships.

ACTL vice-president, Señor Afonso Oliveira, said: “(FKT) will help identify and select the best quality Timorese coffees...The judges are coffee professionals from all over the world and will help us identify the best coffee to get into market, especially international."

FKT panels are also tackling issues such as the revitalization of coffee planting and how to brand Timor coffee. We'll be visiting farms and cupping lots of coffees in the coming week. Stay tuned for more posts.
