Brazil / João Hamilton
We're excited to introduce our new João Hamilton microlot from Sítio Canaã in Mococa, São Paulo, Brazil. Every fall we blind cup multiple coffees form Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza (FAF) and make our Brazil selections for the following year. Three years running we have selected a João Hamilton from the table.
Hamilton owns a 10-hectare farm at an altitude of 1200-1340 masl. He has been working with the Marcos family of FAF since 2006 to increase sustainability, enhance cup quality, while simultaneously respecting nature and reforesting surrounding areas.
Repetition visited Hamilton's farm on a trip to Brazil in 2015 and in 2017 prepared espresso shots alongside Hamilton at the SCA conference in Seattle.
This year's selection is a very well balanced natural Red Bourbon. We taste peanut butter, marshmallow fluff and honey. This is a very delicate cup.
