Brazil / Ivan & Rose Dos Santos
The Brazil / Ivan & Rose Dos Santos comes to us from our friends at FAF in São Paulo, Brazil. Ivan and Rose are a powerful duo that focus their energy on producing excellent coffees and organic farming. While visiting the farm, Ivan and Rose offered us fresh beets right out of the ground and corn meal cake made from homegrown ingredients. We've been buying coffee from Ivan's brother, João Hamilton for years and this was the first year we switched it up and featured Ivan and Rose.
All of our partners in Brazil are part of the FAF 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're really excited to offer you this offering. It is a natural processed Red Bourbon grown at an altitude of 1,200-1,340 MASL.
We fell in love with this cup for its smoothness and balance. We taste dried fruits, light florals a lime-like acidity and chocolate.
