    For those of you who really like a punch to your coffee and are familiar with our Brazilian offerings, we urge you to try this knockout newbie.

    We've sourced a fully washed microlot Brazil for a clean and smooth, yet punchy brew. Working with Danilo, this Catuai varietal has a typically distinctive deep chocolate flavour, paired with notes of macadamia and caramel, giving a low acidity.

    This Brazilian coffee is a perfect choice espresso-based drinking, being full-bodied and balanced. Even so, it's also fabulous for a stove top or pour-over, maintaining a fairly complex versatility. It's a delight for us to roast as one of the very best single origin Brazils you'll find.

    Not only is Danilo’s coffee a brilliant stand-alone, we also pair it with the El Borbollon in Santa Ana, El Salvador as its bezzy mate in our award-winning Casa Espresso Blend.

    Danilo Dones started as a coffee picker for a friend of his family in the Espirito Santo region of Brazil, a region not often revered as the crown jewel of Brazilian coffee – this title often going to neighbouring Minas Gerais.

    However, with much hard work and passion, Danilo convinced his father to replant their farm with coffee, instead of other agricultural crop, such as strawberries and kiwi – such was Danilo’s drive to succeed as a speciality coffee farmer.

    Fast-forwarding to today, Danilo has taken control of Sitio Dones, a small farm in Santa Maria de Jetibá, managing it with his wife Helgas Lahass Dones. A life long dream for Danilo.

    Danilo takes great care and attention with his coffee lot’s, uncommon in Brazil, with most crop being shaken from the tree – all coffee at Sitio Dones in handpicked by cultivar and separated by plot, taking great care to ensure individual profiles of taste are not lost.
