Brazil / Bob-o-link
The Brazil / Bob-o-link comes to us from our friends at FAF in São Paulo, Brazil. Produced by Cristiano Dos Santos at the Sitio Cachoeirnha farm in Mococa. It is a natural processed coffee grown at an altitude of 1,200-1,340 masl.
The Serra do Cigano Valley and wetmill sits in the mountains bordering the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais. Located in the municipality of Caconde, it is an important watershed contributing to the Rio Pardo river from the natural springs that rise on the Bobolink farms of Serra do Cigano Mountains. The name, which means the Gypsy Valley, arose in the 19th century when the valley was used as a camp for the travelling people of the area.
The Bob-o-link project is a network of farmers that share information about ecological farming practices while striving to become fully organic. The project has made progress in reforestation efforts in their area and the continue to empower many local farmers.
We feature a Bob-o-link coffee on our offerings every year and this one is our favorite so far!
