About the coffee (Colombia) The Colombian coffee component of this blend was produced by 52 smallholder coffee producers from the region of Inzá, a municipality located in the corner of the Department of Cauca and looking out to the west over the Pacific Ocean. The farmers are members of an organization called ASORCAFE (Asociación de Productores de Café del Oriente Caucano) that represents some 450 producers from across the Department. This specific lot, however, has been selected only from growers hailing from the neighbouring sub-municipalities of Pedregal and San Antonio for it's very high cup quality.
This coffee brings great sweetness and complexity as well as fruity and sugary flavours to the blend.
About the coffee (Brazil) Fazenda Rodomunho belongs to the Carvalho Dias and Ottoni families who have been growing coffee in Brazil since 1890. They are something of an institution in Minas Gerais coffee circles. The fourth generation of coffee growers are continuing the family tradition on several farms dotted around the region’s prime coffee growing areas, including Rodomunho. The estate is located in the Alto Paranaíba, the highest part of Minas Gerais’ Cerrado region, at some 900-1,050 metres above sea level. It extends over 450 hectares, of which 316 hectares are planted with over a million coffee trees of Mundo Novo, Catuaí, Acaiá and Icatú varietals.
Good environmental practice is a priority for Rodomunho, and the area under coffee is interspersed with native forest reserves to maintain a good ecological balance and provide habitat for local birds and animals. Solid wastes from processing are recycled as organic fertilizer, while the use of either the natural or pulped natural process keeps water usage to a minimum. What water that is used is recycled and fully treated to avoid polluting local water courses.The farm also prioritises good conditions for its workforce, offering : fair wages (well above the average for the sector in Brazil), housing with modern services and utilities, a school, a health clinic and sports facilities. The farm describes itself as a true ‘agrovillage’.
This Red Catuai lot was processed using the natural method and provides structure, creaminess as well as chocolate and nuts flavours to the blend.
