Limited Edition Coffee: Brazil

Brazil is so HOT right now and I’m not talking about the weather. Thanks to the Olympics and Paralympics, this country has been smack-bang in the middle of the world’s spotlight. When it comes to coffee, Brazil is king! In 2014 alone, this nation produced 2,594,100,000 kg of beans, making it the biggest producer of coffee in the world. While this is an impressive number, the important question you have to ask is how does the coffee taste? Is it up to scratch? Well, taste and see!

Palmares Estate

For a limited time we’re releasing our very own Single Origin from the Palmares Estate in the Cerrado Mineiro Region of Brazil. This group has approximately 4,500 farmers producing around 5 million bags of coffee each year. These farmers come from 55 different districts and cultivate 170,000 hectares at altitudes between 800 and 1,300 meter, creating some of the best coffee beans in the world. The weather is also perfect for growing coffee with wet, hot summers and nice dry winters.

What we love about these guys is that they’re the only group that has the Protected Geographical Indication certification which is a European stamp of approval for high quality produce. They have also achieved a Rainforest Alliance certification, ensuring their practices protect the environment, wildlife, waterways and provide fair conditions for workers.

These certifications aren’t a once cialis generique en pharmacie en france off kind of deal; the Palmares Estate has to be assessed and audited by officials regularly to ensure their processes and techniques are maintaining high levels of quality and purity. This type of traceability is important as it’s really easy for standards to drop, for corruption to sneak in and for workers to be treated poorly. But the people at Palmares Estate are passionate about remaining transparent in all that they do and that’s why we’ve partnered with them to create our Brazilian Single Origin coffee.

Want to know what it tastes like? Well, it has a beautifully sweet combination of chocolate and a delicate orange acidity, finished off with a delicious caramel aroma. Can you taste it? Don’t just dream it, try it!

Palmares Estate’s tagline is “Coffee Grown with Attitude; Ethical, traceable and, of course, high quality coffee.” This ticks all the boxes for us and we’re so excited to offer this limited edition Brazilian Single Origin coffee for you to enjoy. Order yours now!
