A longstanding part of our Direct Trade Program. When we sourced this coffee, we had one goal in mind – to develop a coffee with very high sweetness and solid body.
The opportunity came during our 2016 sourcing trip, when we met Sr Ferreira, who runs a small farm in the highlands. The altitude is ideal for the latitude and soil a rich orange. An unrelenting focus on flavor intensity, 100% of the farm’s coffees are processed naturally, basking in the warm glow of Brazil’s sun.
After we pushed new ideas regarding drying and fermentation, the result is an almost honey-like sweetness and rich body. We purchased the entire batch.
With those proceeds, the farm now boasts color sorters for selection, resting tanks and a greenhouse for controlled drying. In 20178, the farm placed Seventh in the prestigious Brazil Cup of Excellence – a spectacular result for the small farm, and testament to the results we can achieve with our producers.
