Things to Buy in Timor Leste

Coffee

Timor Leste’s coffee is grown organically and tastes fabulous. Coffee was introduced in East Timor by the Portuguese. The local way of making coffee is to roast the coffee beans till they turn black and let out a great aroma. Low acidity levels give East Timorese coffee its delicious taste. Make sure you buy your coffee in a traditional market rather than in Dili's grocery stores, where the product is likely to be pre-ground and is often stale.

Tais & Handicrafts

Tais is a local form of weaving created by the women of East Timor. Each region makes differently designed and coloured Tais – and each design represents a distinct family. Tais also make great souvenirs and presents. In Díli, visit the Tais market for a great selection from different regions in East Timor. Other handicrafts include ethnic woodcarvings, batik cloth and embroidered fabrics. Woodcarvings are for sale from many street vendors, and include carvings of crocodiles, local people, masks as well as boats.

Local Produce & Markets

Timor Leste doesn’t have the variety of products or shops that tourists are normally used to. However, there are markets in every town on the island and these cater amply to local needs. A visit to an East Timorese market is a must, and will supply all fresh local produce of the region that you may need.
