DECEMBER 2011 NOTE: Previously this coffee has been Fairtrade certified. The 2011 harvest was not Fairtrade Certified but Bercat has continued to supply it as certified organic coffee for the many people who have grown to love this coffee. FAIRTRADE is still negotiating with CCT for a new FAIRTRADE certification but it is not clear yet when this will be finalised. We still have a small quantity of Fairtrade & Organic Certified coffee beans from East Timor.
