Here's how we brewed this A delicious easy drinking honey process from an underrepresented region of Southeast Asia, roasted by Portland’s Coava Coffee Roasters.

Timor Leste is often eclipsed by neighboring growing regions Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, but its coffee has distinct juicy and spiced notes. Daurfusu is a 37-member group in Dukurai village, led by the highly skilled producer Simiao Pedro de Deus. The lots that make up this selection are processed at the individual farmer level, often using traditional local techniques such as gum-wood and hammered tin pulpers. We tasted cardamon, apple, and maple in this unique honey process lot.

Brew Recipe for Timor Leste Daurfusu Honey

Using Stagg X Dripper


23g of Timor Leste Daurfusu Honey

350g of water



1. Measure and grind coffee at a medium setting

Measure out 23g of coffee beans and grind them on a medium setting. We used setting 5.1-2 on Ode with SSP Burr / 4.1 - 2 on Ode with Gen 2 Burrs, which is about 3.1 - 2 on Ode with Gen 1 Burrs. Suggested setting on Opus is between 5.2 and 6 - and note that the inner ring was set to -4 at 5.2 for us!

2. Heat water and rinse the filter

Heat water to 200°F and rinse your filter before putting your coffee grounds in.

3. Pour 50g water for the bloom 

Fully saturate your coffee grounds with 50g of water, and allow 30 seconds for the bloom.

4. Continue pouring in four stages

After the bloom, pour to 150g; then when the water is approximately 0.5 in above the bed of grounds, pour to 250g; once water drains halfway, pour to 350g, then swirl 3-5 times gently to settle once the water level is about halfway. The total brew time varies, but we’re aiming for between 2:30 - 3:00 minutes.

5. Decant into your favorite mug and enjoy!

Look out for the incredible flavors of cardamom, maple, and apple.
