Sitio means small-scale farm in Brazil, as opposed to Estate, Hacienda or the more familiar name Fazenda. We are really happy to be able to bring you this coffee. It is a privilege to work with a small family (farm) who are just starting out in speciality coffee. Delivering a coffee of this quality is a mammoth task, however, when you understand their personal story of hardship, you just want to support them.
Farm: Sítio Maranhão
Farmer: Claiton Delgado,
Region: South Minas
Varietals: Catuai and Mundo Novo
Cup profile: This lot is so sweet on the frontend. White/ lychee fruit sugars with soft milk-chocolate. Easy drinking, a coffee to drink all day.
Roast level: This is a light filter roast.
Admittedly this is not a 90 Score competition coffee, however, it is a very drinkable, clean and delicious filter that we will be drinking for some weeks to come.
