A Single Origin Coffee from Brazil
Fazenda Esperança is run by the infamous Bruno de Souza, a true pioneer of Brazilian specialty coffee and one of our transparent partners in coffee sourcing.
Each year Bruno sends us a selection of his most weird and wonderful coffees with this washed lot of Yellow Catuai undergoing a 96 hour fermentation.
Butterscotch, Fig, Cocoa
Bruno de Souza is a fourth-generation coffee producer and follows in his father's footsteps in championing the potential of high-quality Brazilian coffees. Having founded a green coffee import business in the US he then returned to Brazil to share his knowledge with local producers. With his own farm as a model of excellence, Bruno is able to support other farmers with processing and export guidance as well as offering barista, sensory and Q grading courses. Over the past decade he has been moving towards a fully contained organic farm along with re-building his own processing mill.
Situated near Campos Altos in the Cerrado Mineiro region, Fazenda Esperança is seen as an industry innovator in pushing forward separation of specific varieties and improving processing standards. Washed coffees are seldom seen in Brazil with Bruno pushing this a step further with an initial fermentation of 96 hours in plastic barrels. This makes for a uniquely clean and vibrant coffee, elevating the sweetness of the Yellow Catuai.
