Sourced from small hectare family farms across the higher Mogiana region of Brazil. The growers have a dry harvest season – so they produce ‘patio dried’ Naturals of 3 different Arabica varietals.
Enjoy classic Brazil notes of smooth buttery chocolate, malt, cocoa and nuts. What more do you want from a fine coffee bean? We love it and hope you will enjoy this bean too – good enough to enjoy ‘on it’s ownsome’.
Here’s more notes from our Importer of this bean:
Average productivity is one of the highest in the country due to highly active aggressive pruning management that ensures a 30-35% renovation rate annually. Our sister company assists the regions farmers so their coffee is responsibly produced, sustainable and traceable. Farmers are implementing activities that make their farms economically viable, socially responsible, all the while looking after the environment as well. Farms range from 20 – 50 hectares, all family operated and the coffee produced, fully traceable. The location of the area, close to São Paulo state, also allows the farmers access to the service and knowledge network of agricultural consultancy bodies, research centres and universities.
An average rainfall of 1700mm and 19.5ºC temperature plays its part in creating the flavour of the region’s coffee. The best description of the climate are hot, wet summers and dry winters with low moisture levels. (Sounds like our Australian subtropical coffees.RZ ) Coffee is rested for 30-40 days in specially made wooden storage containers prior to milling, (interesting!RZ ) – a stage that is often not mentioned but again plays a part on the overall flavour of the coffee.
