MTB Riders 'But First, Coffee' - Brazilian Single Origin - 250g
Our new Brazilian coffee comes from a group of farmers in the Poços de Caldas region of Brazil....
Within the farms that grew this coffee there is a real sense of community, over 400 people work and rely on the estate for an income. On the estate there is a health centre, school & community school. Along with the rich knowledge of coffee production, there is also a strong social and environmental awareness within the family. The families involved work together on a great venture, an amazing reason to include this coffee in our Batch No.3 bundle with our theme of teamwork as we meet friends and family again this spring.
Andre Sanchez Estate farms are perfectly situated to grow coffee in this mountainous region with altitudes ranging from 970 – 1250 masl. The farms sits on the periphery of the volcanic caldera (large old crater) which has a diameter of 31km and has a terroir and climate suited for producing specialty coffee with distinct profiles. Andre Sanchez first came to the region in 1968 from Mogiana with a knowledge in crop production and acquired an abandoned coffee plantation named Boa Vista and set about in the renovation and rejuvenation of the farm.
During Harvest the coffee is manually collected when the cherry reaches maturation. Once picked, the coffee is then pulped removing almost all the mucilage and then laid out on patio’s and turned regularly until the coffee is dried down to 11%. The process lasts usually between 10 – 14 days. Once dried, it is then stored in wooden hoppers for 20 days to rest and equalise before being hulled and bagged ready for shipment
The coffee scores 83.75 points on the Speciality Coffee Association scale. Any coffee scoring 80 and above is guaranteed to come from ethical sources where human rights and the environment are respected, an element that’s as important to us as the taste.
