Brazilian Coffee Beans from Fazenda Sertão – Artisan coffee, freshly roasted.
Fazenda Sertão is located in Brazil’s agriculture capital state of Minas Gerais. Situated over 1000m above sea level, the coffee grows on 50% slopes naturally carved into the landscape. As well as being visually striking, this sloped farm helps to combat against frost in the winter months and improves the general health of the crops. The cherries also ripen more evenly when grown on sloped hillsides, which allows for better harvesting and a tastier cup of coffee.
After previous generations focused on producing high yields, the recent decade has seen a shift in production and the higher quality, Yellow Bourbon variety now thrives here. The awareness and attention to detail has been drastically improved thanks to the Pereira family who treat the coffee with respect.
A Peaberry Brazilian Coffee Bean
The coffee itself is a ‘Peaberry’, where only one coffee seed forms inside the cherry – offering more flavour and allowing for a more even roast. The beans are naturally processed with sweet characteristics of toffee and a lemon-tart acidity present.
Adams + Russell roast this coffee to a medium level and is available in beans or ground. Try in a V60 or Aeropress where the subtle fruity notes can be picked out.
This is an exceptional, single plantation bean that illustrates the passion Brazilian’s farmers put in to their produce.
