Duhoho is produced by 14 small holders reside in Duhoho village in southwest of Asia’s newest independent country, East Timor. The farms are located at an altitude of 1400m to 1600m above sea level. Duhoho village is located in the center of Letefoho town where coffee growers from other villages visit twice a week to buy and sell daily necessities at a local market.

Being led by Senhor Miguel Babo Soares, Duhoho members pay great degree of attention to harvest only fully ripe cherries and avoid contamination of defective ones. Only fully ripe cherries are hand-picked and the harvest finishes just after lunch to process all the cherries within the same day. All the harvests of the day go through a floater selection to eliminate insect damaged beans followed by a de-pulping (wet-processing) with a traditional pulping machine that each farmer possess. After the cherries are removed, parchments are sorted again with a floater selection and fermented for 36 hours. Parchments are then washed, sun-dried on drying tarpaulins.
