About Classic Jo of Brazil

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.
