Brazil São Mateus

The first Brazil we've carried in a very long time exemplifies the kind of coffee we love to source. Not only extremely tasty, but from a farm doing wonderful things.

This is part of Guima Cafe, an award-winning and sustainable-focused farm in Varjao de Minas in Minas Gerais, run by women. The farm has a legal reserve and permanent preservation areas where wolves and foxes live. They have implemented a regenerative agriculture project on 40 hectares. They focus on producing high-quality coffees while taking care of the environment, using methods that take less energy, water, diesel and fertilizer. They are also Utz and Rainforest Alliance certified. Guima also supports community gardening, cultural activities and environmental education programs in its community.

So they do a lot. And the coffee is wonderful. This particular lot is grown at 1000MASL and is a natural-processed coffee of Paraiso MGS2 variety, dried on raised beds slowly. We get milk chocolate sweetness with a golden raisin and cashew note.
