Brazil FazendaBy: North Star Roasters
A classic Brazilian coffee with smooth notes of milk chocolate, roasted hazelnuts and dates. Creamy and full bodied, this is the perfect coffee for those who like a little milk in their brew. We have worked with this area of Brazil since our inception in 2013 and have favoured it for its consistently clean and well balanced coffee which is usually selected as a base to our house blend. This year however, we have decided to release our first ever single origin Brazil in the form of the fantastic Rainha da Paz. As the largest producer of coffee in the world, Brazil has long been known for its coffee though more commonly for its commercial grade lots and focus on volume production. This has been changing in recent years thanks to growers like Marcello who belongs to the Montanari family and is an agricultural engineer who is championing the specialty approach for their three farms in Minas Gerais. As in much of the country, harvesting on Rainha da Paz is mostly mechanical thanks to the flat lay of the land – where Marcello and his family differ is in their commitment to the environment and ecosystem surrounding their land. There are plans afoot to become a carbon neutral farm which would be a revolutionary prospect in Brazil – whilst the farm is relatively new, there is by no means a lack of experience or attention to detail whilst under the watchful management of Marcello and his brother Roger who are fourth generation coffee farmers and really working to push the boundaries of coffee production in their area.
