Sítio d’Água Limpa belongs to the children of Mariana Junqueira, the owner of Rancho Sáo Beneditio, who we also buy coffee from. The farm has very fertile soils and most of it is preserved natural forest ensuring clean water and homes for the local fauna. Great care has been taken with the preparation of this lot. The cherries were selectively handpicked over cloths to prevent any of them from touching the ground, decreasing the chance of contamination. As a result this coffee is very clean and sweet with a complexity of flavor notes found only in the very best of Brazilian coffees.
Carmo De Minas is HANDS DOWN our favorite region in Brazil! We have been working with producers in this region for the last 9 years now and first came across Mariana at the 2011 Brazil Naturals COE where she picked up second place. Mariana is no stranger to the competition and boasts a quaint room in their farmhouse with well over 15 awards framed on the wall. This family clearly goes the extra mile to produce the most exceptional coffee’s possible.
How to drink: Just like you wouldn't add soda your best whiskey, this amazing coffee is meant to be drank black with no sugar or cream.
Roasting days: Proud Mary roast Monday-Friday during normal business hours. To ensure freshness of coffee, best to order early in the week as postal services and couriers do not operate on weekends.
Orders: placed by 8.30am PST will be roasted and dispatched the same day. If you are ordering on a Friday, and order after 8.30am then your coffee will be roasted the following business day - Monday.
