Flavour Category
chocolate & caramel chocolate & caramel
High quality coffee has wide ranging, naturally occurring taste notes. The dominant flavour profile in this coffee is Chocolate & Caramel. Brought out by the roasting process – caramelisation happens towards the end of the roast. Generally the darker the roast, the more dominant the chocolate and caramel flavours are.
Roast
This coffee is a light roast. Roast level influences the flavour and body of coffee. Darker roasts are fuller bodied, lighter roasts brighter. The beans are light brown in colour (unsurprisingly), it will retain more of the natural flavour of the coffee. This can result in a higher acidity and may often show more fruit and floral notes. This roast style means the quality of the coffee shines through the best.
Quality Score
86.0
Coffee scoring over 80 on Speciality Coffee Association scale is considered High Quality, Speciality Coffee.
Best Brewed As
filter
This coffee is best brewed as a filter (cafetiere, pour over, aeropress, drip, etc.). All our coffees can be brewed using any method, but this is our recommendation for a method which suits the coffee particularly well.

More about this microlot

Located in the state of São Paulo, FAF and its owners, the Baretto Croce family, have been at the forefront of Brazil’s organic and sustainable farming movement since 2002.

This lot has been produced from yellow Arara coffee cherries, a varietal that has recently gained popularity in Brazil due to its high cup quality, good production yield and resistance to leaf rust.

The coffee was processed using what FAF call “volcano fermentation”. After cleaning and sorting, ripe cherries are placed in a mound - the energy from the fermenting cherries increases the temperature, which accelerates the fermentation. Over forty hours, they move the coffee into a volcano-like shape to ensure even fermentation. This process yields a fruity, juicy and sweet cup profile.

We are the home of fresh coffee. When you order online, your coffee is roasted fresh to order, especially for you. Plus, it’s speciality grade and traded ethically through Union Direct Trade.

Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza (FAF)

Brazil

Nestled in the region of Mococa, Brazil, you’ll find one of our longstanding producer partners - Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza (FAF). Translating to ‘Environmental Fortress Farm’ in Portuguese – here, farmers produce beautiful coffees, in sustainable and innovative ways.

FAF has been in the Barretto Family since 1850. In 2001, Silvia Barretto inherited the farm, along with her husband Marcos Croce. Together they began to transform what was a traditional farm with 150 farmhands into the farm of their dreams.

Silvia’s keen interest of the natural and organic lifestyle has helped shape the path of FAF. Back when they inherited the farm, their dream and mission was to convert the farm into a sustainable business that took into consideration the environment while producing high-quality coffee

Today, FAF has been transformed. Not only is their sustainably-grown, high-quality coffee celebrated by coffee connoisseurs worldwide, but they are a centre for coffee studies, who welcome arts, sustainability projects and volunteering.

FAF’s coffee knowledge is shared and is a leading force in the creation of the Bobolink coffees.
