US $$ Helps Fund Coffee Biz in Timor

September 6, 2012

Tasting the Joe that the Timor Coffee Cooperative produces, Secretary of State Clinton pronounced it "delicious."
According to Reuters, Secretary Clinton ".... toured a USAID-funded coffee finishing plant, a symbol of the country's second-largest export which generates some $10 million per year.

Women workers in pink and purple uniforms sorted coffee beans rolling off simple conveyor belts. The plant's walls were lined with huge sacks of coffee, much of it destined for the U.S. coffee giant Starbucks, which is a major customer."
