About this coffee

This offering comes to us from producer Marcus Carvalho of Fazenda Chapada. Located in Brazil’s Carmo de Minas region, Chapada’s rolling hills are planted in Yellow Catuai, Yellow and Red Icatu, AcaiĆ” and Mundo Novo varieties. Marcus, a well-known professional soccer player in the mid-80’s and early 90’s, decided to move to Carmo de Minas and manage Chapada, his father-in-law’s farm. Immediately upon accepting the opportunity, Marcus became one the members of the pioneer movement that brought quality control labs and certified coffee cuppers to the region, having great influence on what Carmo de Minas is today.

Deep chocolate melds with nutmeg and maple syrup to create a deliciously comforting cup.
