Square One Coffee

Brazil Fazenda Serrado Yellow Bourbon

Chocolate, nuts, nougat.

Fragrant and sweet, with hints of the classic milk chocolate and hazelnut combo augmented by aromas of caramel and nougat. In the cup, flavors of milk chocolate with nougat melt together with corn candy and caramel. Mellow acidity channels purple grape; body is cream velvet. Balanced and approachable.

Meet The Pereira Family

Fazenda Serrado—not to be confused with the Cerrado coffee-growing region— is a 32-hectare farm located high in the mountains of South Minas, owned by the Pereira family, a force to be reckoned with in the Brazilian coffee world. For over 40 years, the family has cultivated coffee, winning awards for their meticulous attention to detail, even placing in the Brazilian Cup of Excellence twice.

These days most of the business is overseen by two Pereira daughters. They grow several cultivars at Fazenda Serrado, and this lot of Yellow Bourbon was separated into a special lot. Because the terrain rules out the mechanized picking common in much of Brazil, the coffees at Fazenda Serrado must be harvested by hand, and the Pereira family is committed to improving the lives of their 50 employees that do their picking and processing. To that end, they provide on-site houses, a soccer field, and health care.

Carmo De Minas, Brazil

Part of the micro region of Serra da Mantiqueira, the fertile, volcanic soil, high altitudes, and predominant sunlight of Carmo De Minas lend a distinctive terroir to coffees grown here—so much so that it was the first coffee region in Brazil to earn the European Union’s Geographical Indication seal designating that qualities and attributes are unique to this region.

“Mantiqueira” roughly translates as “Crying Mountains,” referring to the natural springs and streams of the region. The state of Minas Gerais is rich in history and European influence. Indigenous people make up a sector of the population, and though Portuguese is the prominent language, other residents hail not just from Portugal but from many varied parts of the globe, including Africa, Germany, and Lebanon.
