I am continually impressed by the Bermond Family. Their dedication and desire to learn and improve are top notch. This year they are trying their hand at a Honey Process coffee and we like the results.

Not quite as complex as last year but super sweet and this lot has an incredible mouthfeel. Reminds me of eating a juicy orange.

From the Importer:

The coffees from Espírito Santo are unique in terms of Brazilian coffees. With the moisture formed on the coast sticking in these mountains, the humidity levels are constantly high making the nights cold and the days as well. The rocky, mineral soil creates for clean crisp and high acidity forward coffees that have a floral touch. FAF's tasters liken the region to (Colombia meets Kenya) in terms of coffee sensory profiles.

​Francisco Bermond's farm Sitio Rancho Dantas is located here. This area has perhaps the best example of the Espirito Santo unique terroir. Surrounded by lots of forest, adding to the richness of his soil and cool weather, his coffees have a bright acidity and a classic brown sugar taste.

Rancho Dantas is one of the most westward peaks in the Mountains of Espirito Santo Region making it the concentration of costal clouds and condensation. This higher humidity keeps the air cool providing a unique microclimate from other Brazilian coffee producing regions provoking coffee nerds to exclaim upon smelling, sniffing and slurping this coffee, 'Hey! This does not taste like a Brazil!'
