The 2nd version of Rosimeire’s coffees from Sitio Vargem Grande this year is a unique interpretation of a Brazilian coffee. Rosimeire continually experiments with different fermentation as well as drying techniques & her results year on year always leave us floored wanting more! 

For the 3rd year, we’ve brought back our favourite producer from Brazil, one who we came across in 2019. Our expectations of Brazilian coffees were exceeded & we have been looking forward to her harvests since then. This coffee is a full Yellow Catuai lot, which was fermented as whole cherries underwater for 72 hours before being dried on patios as naturals. 

We have personally preferred her Yellow Catuai lots for their fruitier expressions, whilst the Red Catuai lots have usually featured more comforting flavours. Through her various experimentations, we have tasted so many different variations & this is one of our favourites! This coffee showcases processed fruit notes like cherry liqueur with a mellow acidity. The mouthfeel is syrupy, reminding us of blueberry syrup & dark chocolate with a sweet genmaicha aftertaste! We hope you will enjoy this coffee as much as we do!
