About this coffee
Copacabana beans are a Catuaí variety from Brazil. They come from the Santa Cecilia farm and are therefore special because they bring all the flavor of the Peaberry in the cup. Notes of milk chocolate, caramel and hazelnut.
About the Farm
Brazilian Geisha Coffee Santa Cecilia was grown on the family estate of Pedro Veloso. He is a third generation coffee producer. His family has been producing coffee in this privileged area for over 160 years. For the municipality of Carmo do Paranaíba, his activities are of great importance.
This is, among other things, due to the fact that it is a very advanced estate with a high yield capacity: It is irrigated by a drip system with water intake from dams and reservoirs and has its own administration, workshop and quality laboratory. Pedro Veloso lives on site himself and structures his daily routine according to what happens on each farm. He spends his early mornings visiting the farms and overseeing harvesting and processing. Later in the day, he takes care of business by going to the trading room in Carmo, where he personally handles calls with international customers.
So now we have an excellent espresso roast that truly deserves the name Specialty Coffee, yet has a broader application.
