Ultra Series #6 - Brazil Jihone Milanez Lacerda Lot #01 (250g)
Coffee cultivation started at Santa Rita Estate in the beginning of 1896 with Jhone’s grandparents, taken by his parents who continued until 1966 when the government had oriented eradication of all coffee plants due coffee berry borer, a beetle that had spread throughout the entire region. In 1971, incentivised by the government and following the technical orientation of the Brazilian Institute for Coffee (IBC), the first crops post eradication was planted with a strong focus and investments on producing quality coffee.
In 2005, the family decided to focus all energy and resources in producing Specialty Coffee by developing and improving pre and post-harvest processes which make it all very exciting about the future and keeps their passion for coffee alive. There is also something intrinsic to the farm environment, mainly regarding the soil and climate aspects that enables it to reach high quality expectations in the lots produced.
This particular lot we are offering is done with natural processing and controlled fermentation at 43°C. This will be a cup of surprise with flavours you won't expect coming from a Brazilian coffee.
Orders placed from 1st to 15th of each month, will have their coffees sent out on 17th of the same month.
Orders placed from 16th to last day of the month, will have their coffees sent out on the 2nd of the following month.
