THE STORY BEHIND
This coffee lot is part of the Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza project called "Bob-o-Link".
The Bob-o-Link coffees are produced mostly in the Mogiana Region ( States of São Paulo and Minas Gerais), at altitudes that vary from 900m to 1,400m high, with Arabica coffee varieties such as Bourbon, Mundo Novo and Catuai.
Most of FAF coffee farmers are formed by small properties , run by single or extended families, located at the top of the mountains, the perfect environment for the best coffees. The beans are picked selectively and dried in terraces next to their homes, close to their eyes.
Fazenda Ambiental de Fortaleza is a farm in Mococa where the owners work with their neighbours, who are not yet organic certified, but are in the process of doing so.
Fazenda Monte Alto brings their fresh cherries to F.A.F. mill to process them, and this lot is a single variety Yellow Catuaì, pulped natural that in Brazil defines what is commonly known as "honey process".
