Sitio Santa Rita - WholesaleRegular price €8,90
Our Classic category of coffees represent a flavor profile which we think shows the best and most enjoyable qualities of specialty coffee. For us classic coffees take us back to the first time we had a really enjoyable cup of coffee and thought that coffee could be something truly special.
Classic category of coffees are the easy eye openers, the ones which pop out to the uninitiated, coffees which make your regular customers or SO say things like “I did not know coffee could taste like this”.
Our first Classic coffee comes from Brazil, from the region of Mantiqueira in the state of Minas Gerais. It is produced by Rosine Aparecida Silva Reis at the farm of Sitio Santa Rita which is 5.4 hectares in total size resting at between 1290 and 1320 meters above sea level. The coffee that both Rosinei and her husband grow at their farm is Red Catuai and is processed naturally.
This coffee stood out to us on the cupping table because of its distinct flavor of dried strawberries and fermented lychees. This was something which we did not expect and we’re immediately blown away by it, immediately we reserved all of the available four bags.
It was later revealed to us by our sourcer that this specific coffee won 5th place at a regional competition held yearly by AMECAFE Mantiqueira (The Association of Women Coffee Entrepreneurs in Serra da Mantiqueira). We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have all four bags of this lot and can’t wait for you to taste it.
