Brazil, Fazenda Terra Alta, Natural Process

This coffee makes for an especially delicious single origin espresso with a fairly concentrated set of flavors to be explored: velvety chocolate, light florals, strawberry preserves, macadamia nut.

The Story

Terra Alta is a new farm, created from scratch combining state of the art technology and respect for the environment.  Producers Juliana and Paulo wake up every day, and some nights, thinking about how they can improve the farm and the coffees. We were able to meet and share some coffee together in December of 2018, after which we fell head over heels for their drive to pioneer new approaches to specialty coffee in production and create a better way to connect coffee farmers and roasters.

This exclusive roast is the result of some shared pizza, lots of emails, and many test roasts to make sure we highlighted the extraordinary care taken at every step.
