About Timbuyaku

Picture this: you weave your way through the middle of a jungle, cross a river by foot, then ascend a hillside. You’re greeted by a spectacular part of the virgin jungle and a very well-maintained sprawling coffee farm. 

This is the journey Tito Rodriguez Ocampo makes to his farm, Timbuyaku — it has no access to roads so the 40+ min journey by foot is the only way into the farm. But, to Don Tito, it’s worth it. 

His farm lies in the remote small hamlet of Nuevo Chirimoto and is part of the larger Amazonas region, an area defined by lush vegetation, high altitudes (a minimum of 1,600 meters or about 5,250 feet) and humid, foggy weather: conditions that favor coffee growing.

Don Tito is a leader in this area, one of the biggest promoters of growing coffee in the region. He’s constantly searching for better techniques to improve the quality and believes that coffee can be a profitable business if managed properly while maintaining an entrepreneurial spirit.

Taste the dedication to his craft with notes of  juicy blackberry, the crispness of red apple and smooth nuttiness of almond. It’s a reliable and well-balanced offering that’ll taste great any way you brew.

Frequently asked questions

We ship almost all orders same or next day, Monday-Friday. We ship via USPS and typically orders take 2-5 days arrive. (But, as you may know, once we drop your package off, shipping times are out of our control.)

The coffee is usually roasted within one business day (Monday-Friday) of shipment. We recommend waiting at least 3-4 days after the roasting date before brewing. (And we think the sweet spot is around 2 weeks!)

All our coffees will be somewhere in the vicinity of a light to medium roast.

The way we approach roasting coffees is called 'profile roasting' meaning that we create a unique roasting profile for each coffee based on the characteristics of each bean (density, size, moisture level within the bean, etc) and how it reacts while roasting so that we can get what we believe to be the best expression possible for each of our coffees!

Lucky for you, any of our coffees can be brewed as espresso!

We aim to roast our coffee so that it tastes great in a variety of brew methods. (Fun fact: espresso is a brew method, not a type of coffee bean!)

If one of our offerings sounds good to you, we bet you’ll like it on espresso too! But, we always like to suggest Tres Banderas as a starting point for espresso. 

No, most of our coffees aren’t ‘certified’ organic. But!! That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re not grown using organic processes. For many of the farms/mills that we purchase coffee from, the cost of the certification could put them out of business — new and separate equipment, cost of application process, the time spent going through certification (multiple years), etc. You can read more on the topic in our blog post here.

We are not officially fair trade certified and typically do not purchase Fair Trade certified coffees. We believe the system is a good one, and has helped many farmers and families earn a better living, however, one thing it does not address well is quality of product, and we typically pay much higher prices for higher quality.

Fair trade usually offers farmers a small premium (about $.40) on top of whatever the current market price for coffee is. We either work directly with producers or importers that already pay well above Fair Trade prices for high quality coffees. We pay top prices for great coffees regardless of any certification.
