Fazenda Grota Funda is found 5 km from one of Brazil’s most famous coffee towns, Carmo de Minas. The farm is situated in the hills of Serra da Mantiqueira at an altitude of 1100 meters, above sea level. The farm has consistently been recommended by COCARIVE, the Regionion Cooperative of Coffee Growers of Rio Verde, due to their continual improvements and specially run programmes that train the workers in quality and cleanliness. The ripest fruit is hand selected and pulped on the same day then laid out to dry. Care is taken to ensure an evenly thin layer of beans can uniformly dry before being rested in wooden bins prior to milling. I love the Bourbon variety of Arabica coffee and although there should be no reason enjoy Yellow Cherries, I’m not convinced there should be any difference between a red cheery or a yellow one, possibly I like it because they are not often grown. I’ve dark roasted this delight and it really is a wonderful sweet fruity coffee with no acidity and slight nutty taste. Scores an 83 SCA so quite good really.
You will receive 100 grams of these roasted beans for £5.00 this will allow you to make between 20 and 40 cups of coffee, depending on cup size. Five grams per cup, the quantity of coffee used will be quite personal so these are guidelines only. This works out at between twenty-five and twelve pence per cup. We also sell larger quantities of this coffee at a more ‘economical’ rate, the price per cup will therefore be lower.
