We believe this might be the best Brazilian coffee we have seen to this point! José Renato Goncalves Dias manages the Fazenda Sertaozinho farm with a single goal in mind: preserve the life and fertility of the soil by utilizing only “hand-labor.” From planting, to picking cherries, to drying, the entire process is completed by hand!
By avoiding mechanized production, Mr. Dias creates very selective harvests that allow only perfectly ripened cherries to be picked. The selectivity comes through very strongly in a delicious cup of coffee.
Expect an enticing mouthfeel full of sweetness. Tones of honey and peanut butter – yes, peanut butter! – are readily present, along with hints of citrus and baker’s chocolate. A truly unique and savory cup!
