This month we’re excited to introduce an exceptional coffee from Fazenda Serrado in Carmo de Minas, Brazil. This is a coffee we’ve been waiting for with excitement, ever since Luka, our production manager cupped the coffee with the farmers at origin. When Luka returned from his origin trip he told us we had to buy this coffee and serve in our stores! So if you love it, thank Luka!

This beautiful coffee has finally arrived and we’re thrilled to roast and brew it for all our wonderful customers. With a delicious combination of praline, chocolate and strawberry, this is a coffee you are not going to forget.

Where Fazenda Serrado is located

Fazenda Serrado is located in the mountains of Carmo de Minas near the mouth of a mineral spring. It is also known Irmas Pereira (“Pereira sisters”) to avoid confusion with the Cerrado region, which is also in Brazil.

The terrain is rugged, which makes mechanical picking impossible. So hand picking is the way they do it here. This is actually a good thing, as it allows for selectively hand-picking only perfectly ripe cherries, which is the first step for specialty producers to get an amazing coffee to market.
