  • Cristo Liurai is located in the western part of Letefoho. Led by Luis Santos de Jesus (a school teacher by day), 15 smallholder farmers show a great respect for their coffee and the land on which it is grown.

     

    Harvesting is not easy due to the steep terrain and dense forests. Members need to make the daily hike up the mountain to harvest their cherries, and at the end of the day will then carry their harvest back down the mountain, often balancing sacks of up to 30kg on their shoulders.

     

    This last few years has seen increased early afternoon cloud coverage settling around the southern part of the Cristo Liurai. Because of this, drying times with are slightly longer, however good things come to those who wait - the resulting coffee is deliciously clean, sweet and well balanced.

     

    2023 has seen construction of a seedling nursery in Eratoi, where together with Simao the field manager and lead farmer of the Eratoi group, the cooperative will be looking to cultivate new coffee and shade tree seedlings.
