SEED TO SIP:
This is hands down one of our favourite coffees. A sweet, creamy cup with delicious stewed yellow fruit notes.
The coffee has been processed by four of our friends and talented women coffee growers of the APAS association – Simone Borges, Marcia de Jesus Souza Bourges, Grasiela Maris and Pamela Borges. After picking, the coffee cherries are left intact and spread out to dry in the sun, allowing the beans to draw in all the yummy fruit flavours and sweetness.
The Mantiqueira de Minas region 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.
We met all four women and their families, walked their farms, and tasted their coffees together. Over the past years we have seen these women growing in so many ways: in their skills and knowledge to improve the quality of their coffees, their undeterred passion and most of all their confidence in themselves.
A beautiful coffee with a huge story to tell. We are convinced you’ll love this little beauty too. HAPPY BREWING.
Did you know, the women coffee growers range is also available as coffee subscription, so you never run out of your favourite brew.
