Fazenda Santa Inês
Francisco Isidro Dias Pereira

Cocoa and caramel with subtle acidity and full body - dark roast

Santa Inês is part of the Sertão Group and in addition to its 75 hectares of coffee it has 140 hectares of native forest and grazing for their Girolando cattle. Francisco Isidro Dias Pereira has five cultivars of coffee planted on the farm: Yellow Bourbon, Red Bourbon, Yellow Catuaí, Acaiá and Mundo Novo. We chose the Yellow Bourbon for its sweetness and toasty flavours. This shipment has been processed using the Pulped Natural Process, during which the cherry skin and fruit are removed and the sticky parchment-covered beans are left to dry naturally. The final stage is the removal of the dried parchment before the coffee is graded, bagged and shipped to the UK. Please see for more information about the farm and photos of the processing, and their Instagram @carmocoffees for photos and videos about how they are preparing for the coming crop and organising for COVID-19.
