NOT YOUR TYPICAL BRAZILLIAN COFFEE

The Fazenda IP is not what you might expect from your typical Brazilian coffee. We were instantly excited with the quality of this Yellow Bourbon varietal, with its smooth, comforting texture, and rich dried fruit notes.
 
The honey process, or "pulp natural", lands between a clean, fully washed process and the fruit-forward nature of a natural process. The cherries are de-pulped and dried with only a portion of the fruit removed. This process yields a good body and texture without giving up the bright acidity needed to balance the cup.
 
Producer Luiz Paulo completed his studies in agricultural techniques and livestock production before joining his father to run the farm together. After decades of hands-on experience, Luiz purchased a de-pulping machine and began to expand his knowledge on coffee processing and the production of speciality varietals.
 
Luiz's ultimate goal is to improve quality and educate those around him on best farm practices. The results are evident in the quality coffee we have purchased. We are thrilled to be working directly with Luiz Paulo for a second year.

DISPATCH & SHIPPING

We roast Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and dispatch 1 business day after roasting. We use Xpress To You overnight service for Metro Melbourne & Aus Post for Regional Victoria, Interstate & Overseas.

FRESHNESS

Fresh is, counter intuitively, too fresh sometimes. Coffee settles as it releases gas from the roasting process - as such the best time to drink is between 5-25 days after roast.
