Brazil Palmital

Tasting Notes:

Creamy body and moderate acidity. Dark chocolate, caramel, creamy cashew notes.

The Fazenda Palmital coffee plantation was purchased in the 1920s by Joaquim Sebastião de Souza, the current owner’s grandfather. Over the years, Fazenda Palmital has built a tradition of producing top quality coffee in a sustainable way.

In 1950 the farm’s management  passed to Augusto de Melo Souza’s Hands.

In the 1970s his wife and son started to take care of the property and the family’ offspring is getting ready to do it so, as he’s studying agriculture.

Currently, 36 families live on the farm in houses equipped with running water, sanitation and electricity, as they should. The temporary workers (around 150 people), during the peak of the harvest, stay in houses with good quality installation with a full range of services. The use of personal protection equipment is mandatory. All workers have full legal benefits and the farm also provides employees and their families with free transportation to primary and secondary schools and medical care in Cabo Verde.

Colombia Suarez

Tasting Notes:

Round body and crisp acidity. Caramel, praline, cherry, grapefruit notes.

Located to the west of the Central cordillera, Suarez has a great variety of landscapes and cultural resources due to the many rivers cutting through the valleys and mountainsides.

The coffee here is picked by the smallholders with their families and neighbours and generally washed and dried on the farm, then brought to a nearby beneficiary for processing. It is then brought to the dry mill or cooperative headquarters for cupping, scoring and sorting for export.

Peru Los Santos

Tasting Notes:

Full body and moderate acidity. Toffee, hazelnut, cinnamon, spiced apple notes.

The Amazonas region in northern Peru borders Ecuador and is known for its dense cloud forests, rugged Andes mountain terrain and ancient ruins. 

Utcubamba province is one of seven within the Amazonas, and is known primarily for the Canyon of Utcubamba which causes a significant change to the ecology in the area and is home to a multiplicity of unique orchid varieties.  The Los Santos farm is part of the National Agrarian Research Program (PNIA), formed to help qualitative issues with agronomy in the country. 

Pache, a dwarf form of typica, commonly found in Peru, grows at altitudes of over 1400 masl. Caturra, a variety also common in Guatemala.  These two beans make up 80% of the coffee grown on the farm, with 10% Geisha and 10% of other varietals that have encroached from neighbouring farms. 

Cherries are picked, sorted and pulped before moving to fermentation tanks and then dried on trays in solar parabolic driers to ensure even results. Beans are sorted according to size, quality and taste, then prepared for export.

Decaffeinated Peru

Tasting Notes:

Sweet glacé cherry aromas, with bold flavours of nuts, almond, chocolate and raisin fruit.

The Swiss Water process is an organic, 100% chemical-free option for decaffeination. It was discovered in the 1930s in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and is commercialised by the Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Company Inc, founded in 1988.

This method does not require the addition of chemicals, instead relying on a super saturated green coffee solution called Green Coffee Extract (GCE).

To decaffeinate coffee, fresh GCE is introduced to a batch of green coffee. As the GCE is already saturated with all the water-soluble compounds found in green coffee, minus the caffeine, the matching molecules won’t diffuse out of the coffee beans—but the caffeine will. The flavour is retained in the beans while the caffeine is removed.

Thanks to some scientific smarts and creativity, it’s possible to have decaf coffee that tastes the same – just without the caffeine!
