East Timor coffee brews little profits

Despite its organic blends being considered the world's best, the country is struggling to make profits.

    By global standards East Timor is a small coffee producer, but it brews one of the world’s best organic blends.

    Most organic coffee beans grown in the remote highlands of Asia’s poorest nation end up in Starbucks stores around the world.

    However, East Timor is struggling to make a profit and some insist the country needs to modernise its farming methods.
