What makes this coffee special is that it goes against everything typical about Brazilian coffee producing. The farmer, Diogo Dias, has completely revolutionized his family’s farm, which has been in his family for 6 generations. He’s spent the last several years planting new varieties and experimenting in harvesting and processing techniques. This microlot is made up of selectively picked (as opposed to the typical strip picking method) yellow bourbon that was dried in the cherry on shaded raised beds. The result is a richly complex coffee, with dried fruit flavors, heavy creamy body, and a lingering sweet finish.
Very excited to be sharing this coffee with you, as it marks out first direct trade relationship microlot coffee from Brazil. Enjoy now through December 2018.
