Meet Classic Jo

For Classic Jo, Folly Coffee looks for coffees that are loaded with nutty, chocolatey flavor. This lot is a direct trade coffee from the Our Coffees farm in Brazil, owned by Jose Maria de Oliveira. Unlike some coffees in Brazil, it was grown at a higher altitude than most, resulting in an amazing flavor profile.

When Rodrigo from Our Coffees was visiting Minnesota, Folly Coffee became extremely impressed not only with their coffees, but their practices as a farm. They focus on economic sustainability in their own community by educating other farmers at their mill and supporting a number of youth programs.

Cerrado Minero, Brazil

Take the state of Texas, multiply it by 3, and you’ve got the size of the cerrado (woodland savannah) of Brazil, one of the richest savannahs in the entire world in terms of biodiversity. But for coffee lovers, Cerrado refers to a region in the west of Minas Gerais state, Brazil. The clay mineral soil here necessitates ongoing fertilization, but coffee plants do like its hot, wet summers and pleasantly dry winters.

Cerrado de Minas, also referred to as West Minas or "Triângulo Mineiro," is the first coffee-producing region in Brazil to win Protected Geographical Indication (PGI). Coffees from here--usually natural or pulped natural processed--are balanced, with creamy mouthfeel and caramel-to-chocolate notes in the roast. Though coffee cultivation came to the Cerrado only 40 years ago, 90% of farms here range from medium-sized (2-300 hectares) to huge plantations. However, the Brazilian Forest Code now requires farmers to set aside 35% of their land for conservation.
