    Description

    Owned by the Ferrero family for three generations, this is one of the oldest coffee plantations still producing coffee in Brazil. Originally created in the mid-19th century as a much larger tract that stretched along the banks of the Rio Grande from the waterfall into the land of Marimbondo Aparecida de Minas, it was visited by then-reigning monarch Emperor Dom Pedro II and Empress Dona Theresa Christina. Even though this farm is steeped in tradition and history, the production is extremely innovative.


    Earning a place in the finals in the Brazilian Cup of Excellence was an appreciated acknowledgement of this farm’s effort and attention to detail. This is a honey-processed coffee, which means that it is picked as a ripe yellow cherry, taken to the mill and depulped, and then patio dried. The result is a cleaner cup style with brighter notes and a lighter body. Honey processing was made popular by Brazilian farms like Fazenda Pântano, and now other innovative producers around the world are following their lead.


    There is only one farm in the world that cultivates this varietal. Wagner Ferrero has an affinity for the color yellow.  In fact, he only grows yellow coffee varietals on his Fazenda. Perhaps it’s because of this that he has the Yellow Mundo Novo, a unique hybrid between Sumatran and Yellow Bourbon.  But this is way more than just an unusual varietal; it is a solid coffee that produces something extraordinary out of the oft overlooked soil of Brazil.

    Perfect Holiday Cup

    I normally prefer my coffee dark and strong to help wake me up, but during the slower pace of the holidays I like something a little more mellow and festive. I bought this Brazilian medium based on the description - it seemed to have a nice "holiday" flavor - and it does. It's a little expensive compared to what I normally buy, but it's delicious and will make great a great Christmas gift for my family. Price: B Quality: A Customer Service: A

    Roaster Info

    Founded in 1998, Cuvée Coffee is a veritable old-timer in the specialty coffee industry, having provided coffee enthusiasts with sustainable artisanal coffee for 15 years. When Mike McKim began roasting coffee as a side business in 1998, he had a simple philosophy: buy the highest-quality coffee available, roast it to exacting standards, deliver it fresh and teach people the proper ways to brew it. That philosophy has never changed, even as Cuvée has grown and been credited with pioneering the specialty coffee movement in Texas. Today, Cuvée Coffee is recognized as one of the premier specialty coffee roasters in the country, and it still focuses on providing great coffee, roasted perfectly and delivered fresh—the ultimate coffee experience.

     

    Sustainability and Fair Trade are not just buzz words for the folks at Cuvée Coffee. To continue delivering on their commitment to providing great, sustainable coffee, Cuvée sources all of its selections through fair, direct relationships with farmer-partners who are dedicated to producing the highest-quality coffees using sustainable methods. The Cuvée team works with each farmer to help develop and implement methods of growing better coffee in ways that do not damage the environment, and to help create a positive impact on the quality of life for everyone that touches the coffee in any way on its journey from the seed to your cup.

     

    Cuvée’s coffee offerings include a range of specialty single-origin coffees and blends created from seasonal, ethically sourced coffees from Latin America and Africa. Every blend is crafted exclusively from coffees that are also sold as single-origins because Cuvée believes that the finished coffee is only as good as the parts you use to make it. Their Spicewood 71 Classic and Decaf blends are fine examples of the potential rewards offered by this approach.
