Speciality Coffee

NEW - Single Estate - BRAZIL: Bom Jesus - 100% Arabica

£6.75

  • For those of you that really like some punch to your coffee and are familiar with our Brazilian offerings, should have go on this knockout single origin. It really is the boldest coffee I've ever roasted, yet retains lovely notes of chocolate, walnut, maple with the sweetness of brown sugar.

    Fantastic for espresso based drinks in particular and for those who like a full-bodied Arabica.

    You won't find this coffee anywhere north of London, so get ordering! It's fantastic through an espresso machine, but I’ve really enjoyed it used on a stove top and Aeropress. It’s incredibly versatile, so can be brewed in many ways, yet has the complexity of a high-end single origin.


    Rin recommends: Use this Brazil esp. through an espresso machine, Aeropress or Bialetti: Stove Top

    COFFEE


    The coffee from Fazenda Bom Jesus has a bright and remarkable acidity with hints of chocolate and walnuts. It leaves a very light and pleasant aftertaste. Notes of brown sugar make it a naturally sweet cup. A hint of maple syrup can also be detected. Its stunning aroma is very soft and sophisticated. The sweetness of the coffee is a result of the coffee varietal Mundo Novo and the natural process. The sugar in the coffee cherry is passed on to the bean as the coffee cherries are all dried together, removing the husks just after the coffee reaches a humidity of 11.5 %.
    The coffee is grown at an altitude of around 1,000 metres above sea level. This allows for ideal levels of rainfall of approximately 1,000mm per year. The constant temperatures of 20-25 C make for ideal conditions for the growth of healthy coffee trees and cherries.

    FARMERS

     
    Fazenda Bom Jesus is the work of the couple Gabriel and Flavia Lancha Oliveira. With a long heritage in coffee culture both are grandchildren of coffee producers. They themselves passed their love and care on to their sons, Lucas and Gabriel junior who are also dedicated full-time to the farm. In 1984 they formed The Labareda Group, diversifying into various rural activities although coffee is still the most foremost in family hearts and indeed remains their main crop. Fazenda Bom Jesus is located in Cristais Paulistas in the Alta Mogiana Region.
    Gabriel and Flavia are more than just a farming couple. Their objective is to sustainably develop their region from a social and economical point of view. Fazenda Bom Jesus was a founder of the Alta Mogiana Specialty Coffee Association - AMSC. It promotes a greater conscience with regard to speciality coffee in the region as well as developing better farm practices. Performance bonus payments are also made alongside employees fixed wages. Flavia verifies that all employees on the farm must be literate and receive specialized training to do their job. As for the workforce, all their children must be enrolled at the local school.
