The Main Farm:

OWNERS – Gabriel e Flavia & Lancha de Oliveira

ALTITUDE GROWN – 1270 meters above sea level

LOCATION – Cristais Paulistas, Alta Mogiana, Sao Paulo

PROCESS – Natural process, sun dried, 30 days resting period

CERTIFICATIONS - Rainforest Alliance Certified and Alta Mogiana Specialty Coffee Association (AMSC)

VARIETY – Catucai

SCA SCORE - 85 - regarded as "Excellent"

This 'Fazenda' is owned and run by the Oliveira family in the Alta Mogiana region, Brazil. They focus on producing specialty and high end coffees from this region with acute attention to all areas of production, including the environmental and social aspects of their business.

The farm is relatively small with 20% constituting of a protected nature reserve for the native species. The farm is fertilised with organic compounds as the main source of amino acids, to increase the productivity and quality of crops. 

On the farm they specialise in one variety of coffee - Catucai. As well as planting eucalyptus and mahogany trees to provide shade and a useful source of timber.

The sweetness of the coffee is a result of the coffee varietal Catuai and the natural process. The sugar in the coffee cherry is passed on to the bean as the coffee cherries are dried together, removing the husks just after the coffee reaches a perfect humidity of 11.5 %. Notes of brown sugar make it naturally sweet. A hint of maple syrup can also be detected.

Great for bean to cup, filter coffee machine, or ground for a French press or moka pot. Works well with or without milk. Also excellent with Oat milk.

100% Arabica

Why plant trees?

  1. Restoring animals’ habitats, which, in turn helps increase biodiversity by giving endemic species the chance to thrive
  2. Removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by putting it back into the plants and soil, and therefore helping to reduce global warming
  3. Cleaning the air by removing pollutant gases such as nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulphur dioxide and ozone by trapping these gases in their leaves and bark 
  4. Restoring local ecosystems that have been destroyed by deforestation or other external factors
  5. Reducing the impact of flooding and soil erosion, which helps to protect nearby communities and their livelihoods 
  6. Providing an income for tree planters in lower income countries.

Brewing espresso is a lot like brewing tea; if we leave our bag in too long we risk over-brewing the tea and extracting “stewed” bitter flavours from the leaves but if we do not leave it long enough our tea risks being weak and insipid. This means we must exert control over our brewing process to ensure that we extract all of the desirable flavour compounds whilst leaving behind the compounds responsible for unwelcome bitterness and astringency. This is easy with a teabag – we can take it out whenever we choose – but achieving the same control with espresso is slightly more complex.

Coffee does not extract homogenously during its brewing cycle. Most extraction occurs during the first third of its brew time. Typically fruit acids and bean fragments that contribute towards body extract first, followed by sugars, and then bitter compounds.

‘DIALLING IN’ OUR ESPRESSO

Understanding your grinder is the key to achieving desirable DOSE and BREW TIME. Whether you are using a modern “on-demand” grinder or a more traditional “dosing grinder” you should be able to control both DOSE and GRIND TEXTURE, both of which are critical to brewing balanced espresso. Here’s how...

Using scales, weigh a consistent dose of ground coffee into your double espresso basket -16g - 18g is a sensible choice for most espresso machines.

Aim for 36-40g of liquid espresso (single espresso) or roughly a ratio of 1:2 (18g of ground espresso to 36g of liquid espresso). 

Is it within your target brew time window? We recommend 20 - 30 Seconds.

Yes = SUCCESS!

Your espresso is probably well brewed and should taste full, sweet and balanced.

No = If you haven't extracted 30-40ml of liquid espresso, in 20-30 seconds, your grind is too FINE and your espresso will most likely taste thin, bitter & ashy.

Coarsen your grind slightly then grind and discard at least 20g of coffee to remove traces of the previous grind setting

No = If you have extracted too much liquid espresso (over 30ml for single espresso, over 60ml for double). Your grind is too COARSE and your espresso will most likely be weak and sour.

Make your grind slightly FINER then grind and discard at least 20g of coffee to remove all traces of the previous grind setting

Nice balanced flavour.

First time try of this roastery and their Signature Gold beans.
Once machine settings adjusted to optimum extraction profile (Lelit Bianca), the espresso is a lovely balance of flavours. This makes an excellent base for steamed micro foam milk drinks.
