 THE STORY BEHIND

We found this Jewel as usual after extensive cupping session to select only the best lots, and it's in our honest opinion the best Brazilian lot we have ever cupped!
Try to put this lot on a open cupping session with different origins and we promise you will never guess this lot is coming from Brazil.
This lot was packed in an innovative bag,  you can watch here the video. The smell was simply soooo fresh and sweet!
Located in the southern area of the Espirito Santo state, where mild temperatures (73ºF) and steep highlands (between 700 and 1,000 meters) favor growing Arabica coffees, this region produces a superb quality coffee with a round body, nice acidity, and fine sweetness. While the most common process for the region is Natural, Pulped Naturals are increasing in popularity.
The region is dominated by small-scale coffee-growers and is characterized by the presence of farmers who are actively engaged in the entire chain of the production process. Growers in Espirito Santo work with family members and build off of traditional knowledge to innovate and improve their quality of life and coffee.
Third generation in the business, Mr. Nunes has cultivated coffee on this family property for over 80 years, following the footsteps of his grandfather. The harvest is done manually and selectively to promote quality assurance of the annual production of 280 bags. The sustainable and environmentally protected farm has 17 hectares of which 7.4 are devoted to coffee. Mr. Joao promotes the washed and pulped natural processes finalizing the drying preparation in the farm’s greenhouse.
