Cachoeira Da Grama Medium Roast Coffee Beans

This coffee is roasted to present a rich candied fruit sweetness in the cup, and a dry cocoa finish due to the natural (sun dried) processing. Being such a sweet, complex and balanced coffee, it is suitable for all methods of preparation, including making a great single origin espresso.

Roasted and packaged in Toronto, Canada, by Outpost Coffee Roasters.

 

The Roasters

Outpost Coffee Roasters is a Toronto-based specialty-grade small batch, craft coffee roastery. While other companies seek to deliver a product that looks and tastes the same at any time of year and every location, Outpost embraces seasonality, uniqueness and innovation, and is proudly part of a movement that treats coffee like a fine wine, not simply a commodity. Outpost celebrates the differences and strive to maintain the uniqueness of each individual crop.

 

The crop

The farm, Fazenda Cachoeira da Grama, in Brazil, has been in the Carvalho Dias family since 1890. Some of the original Bourbon varietal trees are as much as 107 years old. Gabriel de Carvalho Dias, son of the owner, Lindolpho de Carvalho Dias, is responsible for the property's management. It is located 3 miles from Minas Gerais state line and has characteristics from the mountainous areas of Mogiana and from Sul de Minas.

On this farm everything is done manually, which includes coffee plantation handling and harvest, since its topography does not allow any kind of mechanization. Social and environmental sustainability is considered very important in the farm management. Lindolpho de Carvalho Dias developed a program of planting native species to keep a better ecological balance.

The farm has a school, a club and an official size soccer field for the employees benefit. There are 47 houses for the employees and their families, all with modern facilities. The waste water is treated to avoid polluting the stream that runs across the farm. The farm has a small hydroelectric plant and only buys energy during the peak harvest.
