Rob Says: During my ongoing search for the best coffees this planet has to offer, i knew that one day i had to visit Carmo de Minas. And so happened on a round trip in Brazil in 2014. It is in this village, where the coffee in planted on steep hills and in red clay soil, that the most award winning Brazilian coffees grow. For our Brazil IAN offer for the second half of 2021 we cupped dozens of coffees, from which this lot from Fazenda FURNAS, out of Carmo de Minas, jumped out as the sweetest and cleanest of all.
After the coffee has been hand picked and dried on the farm, it is delivered to the nearby COCARIVE mill for quality control and export.
