Brazil Santa Rosa
CHERRY & MILK CHOCOLATE
A NOTE FROM THE ROASTER:
Brazilian coffees are known for their maximum chillness and this bad mama jamma fits that tradition. However, where most Brazil’s are just smooth and mellow, this one washes up on the shores of your palette with flavor waves of white sugar, juicy yellow tropical fruit, cherry syrup, and a milk chocolate finish. Get out your wallets ‘cause you gotta get this brewed and in your mouth – stat!

Dudes, let's brew this one in the Chemex. We're going to go with the standard dose of 40 grams and a yield of 640 'cause if it ain't broke... am I right? Once it's finished, pour some in your favorite cup and let it cool just a bit. While it's cooling, get your nose down in the cup and inhale deeply, then go in for that first sip... boom - it's like Count Chocula and Boo Berry had a baby right there in your dang cup. If that's not the breakfast of champions, I don't know what is.
Fazenda Santa Rosa is located in the city of Berizal in the Jequitinhonha Valley in the Chapada de Minas region. Jequitinhonha Valley is full of waterfalls, caves, coffee and eucalyptus plantations, and cattle ranches. In the past, gold and diamonds from nearby mines flowed through the valley.
Antonio Jose Felix Rosa began the Felix Santa Rosa project in 2002, when he and his wife and two children bought the land where the property is today. During a visit to the north of the Minas Gerais state. During a previous visit to the region Jose Felix saw the land and it was love at first sight.
There was no local structure, roads, or electricity. Jose Felix made many early investments to provide an ecologically sound and socially just enterprise. The goal is to make Santa Rosa farm a model farm in the region. The exact location of the farm was chosen based on factors including the number of solar hours, elevation, and low incidence of diseases, which reduces the use of pesticides.
