Nutty. Caramel. Orange.

This single origin is packed with nutty flavour. It has a medium body that's balanced well with a mellow citric acidity and sweetness. We get notes of nuts, caramel, and orange. 

The producer of this Brazilian coffee is Franciso Sergio de Assis. He was born in the town of Paranavai and graduated as an agricultural engineer in Bandeirantes, Paraná. In the 1980s, problems with frost and nematodes on Paraná’s coffee plantations forced him to look elsewhere. He moved to the Cerrado Mineiro region of Minas Gerais where he found plots of lands at good prices to continue his agricultural work. He bought Fazenda Terra Rica in Monte Carmelo with his father-in-law and started planting coffee across 503 hectares of the 715 hectare property.

When he and his wife were first establishing Terra Rica, they carried bags of coffee to the trucks themselves. Over time they hired employees to help with the farm’s operations. Mr. Assis managed to maintain his crop and to cover all his debts, even in periods of frost causing great losses in the region. Despite periods when the price of coffee fell, his farms have remained stable and he has invested in new technologies since the early 1990s. He is a leading innovator of methods for pruning trees to maximize production.

This lot of Red Catuai coffee underwent Natural processing. Catuai was made by the Instituto Agronomico (IAC) of Sao Paulo State in Campinas, Brazil by crossing Mundo Novo and Caturra varieties. Catuai coffees are cultivated widely across Brazil, and are known for their high productivity potential.
