Brazil Mogiana - Espresso Roast
This natural processed coffee presents a balanced cup with notes of dark chocolate, roasted almonds, and and brown sugar. Because it is very low in acidity, this coffee is also very approachable.
This coffee was produced by FAF which is owned by the Croce family. The Croce family came back to Brazil in 2001. After escaping Brazil’s economic crisis of the 1980s, the family spent almost 20 years working and living in the United States.
FAF now works with over 350 producers, most of them families on 2 to 30 hectares, whose combined coffee fills about 70 containers. There are contributing farmers throughout Alto Mogiana, the area in eastern São Paulo state where FAF and Caconde are located, as well as in Minas Gerais, and Caparaó, a rugged Andean-like region on the border of Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo states. FAF, the original farm, is now a full-time testing ground for regenerative farm models and varietal studies, as well as a central quality command center in service of participating producers.
We roasted this coffee specifically for espresso. Enjoy it as espresso on its own or with milk.
