About

Our Brazil Fazenda Santa Luzia is a luscious single origin offering with notes of sweet orange and rich chocolate. Though mild bodied and gently acidic, this coffee is deeply fragrant and produces a fruity, berry-heavy mid palate flavor and striking finish.

Campos Altos is located in the state of Minas Gerais Brazil. The Cerrado Mineiro region is known as the only meeting place in the entire country of the Atlantic Forest and the Brazilian Rainforest. Fazenda Santa Luzia, the source of this Specialty Reserve offering, is situated on the top of a large hill. The plants are organized and segmented on each individual farm at Campos Altos to provide full traceability. The farms, 4 in total, range from 1000 - 1250 meters above sea level.

José Maria’s focus on quality and traceability ultimately led him to encourage buyers like Fresh Roasted Coffee to visit the farm to learn about all Brazilian coffee had to offer. With his own dry mill in house (constructed in 2014) Maria was able to eliminate his dependency on external facilities to process the coffees.

The dedication to careful and thoughtful growing and processing has created coffees which consistently score over 90 points and above.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Brazil

Minas Gerais is the largest coffee-producing state of the 26 states that make up Brazil, accounting for almost half of the country’s total coffee. The landscape in Minas Gerais abounds with mountains and valleys, which give Brazilian coffees their wide-ranging flavor profiles. Consistent rainfall, high daytime temperatures, and dry winters make Minas Gerais ideal for coffee growing. Its rich, deep soil is known to the natives as Terra Rosa, or “pink earth” in Portuguese. Fresh Roasted Coffee is proud to source our Brazilian coffee from two regions within Minas Gerais: Sul de Minas and Cerrado de Minas.
