Description

Fazenda São Judas Tadeu is located in Chapada Diamantina, in the city of Piatã in Bahia. The farm belongs to Mr. Antônio Rigno, who has been a coffee producer for more than 25 years. He tries to grow the coffee in a sustainable way, conducting the workers technically with the use of chemical pesticides and keeping the packages of these products for recycling, not to harm the environment.

The coffee cherries are harvested selectively by hand twice a day during harvest season, and are transported by tractors to the pulping machine where the skin and pulp is removed from the beans. The beans are then spread on drying patios still with the sticky mucilage on. The beans are then spread in layers of about 4cm and mixed several times a day to ensure even drying. The variety is Catuai and is pulped natural processed.

This is another of our UK exclusive coffees and it is shared with some of Europe's finest roasters.

In the cup expect molasses like acidity, with great chocolate and cocoa sweetness and a crunchie chocolate type honeycomb aftertaste. Very well balanced espresso and lovely brewed coffee.
