Unlike a regular Brazilian coffee (nutty flavors), this SL28 brings fruity, funky flavors to your cup. A must-have for all Brazil fans!
About the coffee:
Grown in Carmo de Minas at Fazenda Santuario Sul, a 120-acre farm of which 80 acres are planted to coffee, this SL 28 joins our lineup of Brazilian coffees with its exceptionally good cup profile. Its summer sweetness has emerged just in time for the season, bringing out fresh notes of melon, exotic kiwi and sugar cane in the cup.
The exceptional quality of this SL28 is largely influenced by its high elevation at 1300 meters.
About the farm:
Fazenda Santuário Sul (the Sanctuary) is a project founded with the aim of being at the forefront of new market trends. It is not easy to start a plan with the idea of bringing together coffees from different regions of the world to create a new profile of Brazilian coffee. The coffees grown here show the tenacity of farmer Luiz Paulo and his partners.
Today, in addition to traditional Brazilian varieties such as Yellow Bourbon, the farm has more than 30 different coffees, differentiated cultivation practices such as shaded fields, and innovative practices (new flavors).
Santuário Sul is located next to one of the most traditional farms in Carmo de Minas, Irmãs Pereira, where the coffee is processed. With great care, the varieties planted are closely monitored to obtain the best results from the climatic conditions of the region. In addition, Luiz Paulo himself insists on couping the first cherries of each coffee. For the next few years, Luiz Paulo is clear: “The goal is to be at the top of the market and offer more and more quality!”
In recent years, the coffees have achieved a truly brilliant track record in the annual Cup of Excellence.
