The Flanzer family is an agricultural family, working within the Serra do Cabral region for over 30 years. When Marcello and Roberto Flanzer took over their family business in the early 2000s, they decided it was the right time to grow coffee on their family farm. They founded Ecoagricola Serra do Cabral in 2006, where they originally only grew Yellow and Red Catuai. As things have progressed and their relationships grown, they have been able to experiment with more microlots and different processing. This coffee, a yellow catucai, was shade-dried and turned several times a day. Once dried, it rested for 30 days in a cool, dark environment, giving it many of its unique characteristics.
Single origin coffees from Brazil always get a strong reaction from our team and guests. There's something about their familiar nuttiness mixed with jammy fruits that creates something both comforting and new (this coffee is about as close as you can get to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich). With each sip you can discover something new: the mouthfeel of a roasted almond, the coating nature of milk chocolate, or its more sugary grape jam fruitiness. It’s another perfect snapshot of Brazil’s future in specialty coffee and one that we think you'll remember for a long time.
