Brazil Catuai & Bourbon can be drunk as a single origin or as a base for blends.
Its balance makes it perfect for coffees from the filter holder such as espresso, café crème or cappuccino. Very pleasant and full-bodied also as French press and in the Bialetti espresso maker, each with notes of nuts and chocolate.
The Fazenda El Dorado is a traditional family business in the Alta Mogiana and is located at 1080 to 1270 metres above sea level. For more than 100 years and already in the fourth generation, the family has been growing coffee here. In recent years, the farm has put an increasing focus on smaller lots and speciality coffees. As a result, they have won several awards for their coffee in recent years and received high ratings in the Cup of Excellence. The farm covers 256 hectares, of which 180 hectares are planted with coffee and 45 hectares are forest reserve. The farm is run by brothers Elvis Vilhena Faleiros and Jean Vilhena Faleiros. They continuously invest in the training of their team in order to improve the quality of the coffee on the one hand and to cultivate the coffee as sustainably as possible on the other.
The Alta Mogiana area has an excellent microclimate due to its altitude and the presence of nearby lakes and rivers, making it one of the best-known and most popular coffee-growing areas in Brazil. After harvesting, the cherries are taken to the terraces where they are spread out to dry in the sun. Once they have reached 11% moisture, the beans are taken to wooden resting boxes where they rest for at least 30 days.
