 THE STORY BEHIND

Sitio Alto da Serra is a quite new coffee farm located in a very interesting and growing terroir called Natercia (Sul Del Minas state). The first coffee trees were planted in year 1998, during which Domiciano Paulo Goncalves has inherited the family farm and he decided to embark on coffee cultivation.

The first 5 years, production was very low due to the young tree age. The following years production was centralized on optimized, raising quality and consistency level.

Today, Domiciano hard work it is quite clear in the cup, creating an exotic experience. One of the peculiar flavour of this lot, besides the classic hazelnut and cocoa notes that are easy to find in a specialty Brazilian, is the BANANA.

It works particularly well on espresso creating super balanced and fruity shots.
