LIGHT ROAST COFFEE
For this coffee, we opted for a light roast profile. Lighter roasted coffee beans accentuate the coffee’s quality and its intrinsic sensory profile.
RECOMMENDED BREWING METHODS
We roast our filter coffees for a shorter time which makes them less porous than coffee roasted to a darker roast level. This means the coffee’s solubles, the tasty bits, extract more slowly and are best suited to slower extraction methods.
We recommend drinking this Brazilian filter coffee as V60 pour over or batch brew for a cleaner cup with a lighter mouthfeel which lets the coffee flavours and acidity shine. If you are after a bigger mouthfeel, try plunger brewing.
This filter coffee is best enjoyed without milk.
Natural-processed coffees have the ability to display a diverse range of fruit notes. That’s because after the coffee cherries have been harvested, they are left intact and spread out to dry in the sun. That allows the beans inside the coffee cherries to draw in all those yummy fruit flavours and sweetness from the surrounding fruit flesh.
Enjoy the beautifully layered nuances of this light roast filter coffee.
Meet our amazing coffee grower
Grasiela is a founding member of the Flores em acao group of women coffee growers, who grow and process specialty coffees.
Together with her husband, Grasiela started their own coffee farm from a parcel of land passed down to them. In 2015 they discovered the potential of the quality of their coffee achieving an unbelievable 91.7 point score in a local contest followed by a cup of excellence score of 88.37 points.
Since then Grasiela has directed her focus on post-harvest processing to produce amazing sensory profiles which we love.
Their 12 ha farm is located in the Mantiqueira de Minas region which is home to many smallholder coffee farming families and is one of the most awarded regions in Brazil due to its natural beauty, pleasant climate, fertile soils, and tradition of producing specialty coffees with surprising diverse sensory profiles.
Sustainable coffeeWhen sourcing our coffees, we not only select the best coffees based on the unique tasting profiles, we are very much conscious of the coffee’s environmental impact. Did you know the largest impact on a coffee’s carbon footprint happens throughout cultivation, harvesting and any processing undertaken at the farm. That’s why we differentiate between organic certified coffees, wild grown coffees and environmentally friendly coffees.
This coffee originates from an environmentally friendly smallholder coffee farm. This means the farm has successfully implemented measures to mitigate the environmental impact of coffee farming. These measures include hand-harvesting of coffee without the use of machinery and fossil fuels and natural processing of harvested coffee cherries preserving water resources and avoiding wastewater.
