“The creamy milk chocolate flavours are really complemented by distinct almond and juicy raisin flavours. Its creamy mouthfeel and very light citrusy lemon acidity mean that it works really well with milky coffees. It ends up tasting like a sweet milky, hot chocolate.”
Our espresso is actually made up of coffee from two different producers: Planalto Estate and El Diamante.
For the past 25 years the Planalto Estate has been growing speciality coffees in the highlands of the Nova Rezende, in the south of Mina Gerais in Brazil. The generous space (it’s more than 900 hectares in size), combined with the 3600 foot altitude and the surrounding natural forest, contribute to the farm’s unique microclimate - which is perfect for growing high-quality coffee.
The farm is managed by Sergio Mantovaninni who, together with his wife Mariza, inherited the farm from Mariza’s father.
Jesus Antonio Apache has been working on his farm since he was a teenager helping his father and other farmers in the area. His experience along with some guidance from the FNC has allowed him to improve his cultivation techniques and quality. Using this knowledge has allowed him to become an example in the region, showing other farmers the potential for re-investment in their own farms can lead to a higher price for their coffee.
