[Video Transcript] Railaco Processing Station


Hi everyone. Giorgia here from Timely with a quick update for Feature Coffee Subscribers. You're receiving Coffee from Railaco processing station from the Ermera municipality in the country of Timor-Leste. Now in this area, what producers will do is that they will produce their Coffee, they'll pick it and then they'll deliver it to Railaco processing station where the Coffee is sorted fermented and then it's dried and processed and so on.

In this area, over a third of households rely on Coffee as an income. So there's a really strong push and a really strong commitment to wanting to increase the quality of the Coffee. It is made up predominantly of Catimor, Caturra and Typica variety coffee. Catimor is a hybrid of two varieties. It is a hybrid of Hibrido de Timor and Caturra. This particular variety is very resistant to coffee leaf rust and other diseases. It's very high yielding.

So we assigned the colour purple to this Coffee. We think that the defining characteristic of this coffee is that it is sticky. We haven't had a purple coffee on the catalogue for a really long time, so we're really excited about this one. When you drink this coffee, you can sort of expect notes of nectarine tea plum, that sort of really stone fruity kind of sweetness, and it's also very sticky and chewy. So it feels very it's quite intense, but it's very, very lovely sort of drinking experience. Yeah. That's all I got for you this week, folks. I hope you enjoyed this coffee from Railaco processing station.

But otherwise, that's all I got. And I'll see you next week. Thanks very much. And having really good resistancy to resistancy? So what that's done is it. Feature Coffee Subscribers?
