Background: The Camocim Estate is located in the Espirito Santo region, a coastal state north of Rio and west of Minas Gerais. Owner Henrique Sloper pays a great deal of attention to selecting species of coffee plants that will flourish in the various conditions throughout his farm. The plantation has been planned meticulously, and the choice for planting areas has been made based on areas of sun exposure, soil chemistry, and where the hillside faces turn to the east and/or to the north.
Camocim Estate is one of our Direct Trade offerings, and over time we have developed a very special relationship with this farm and its owner. This time we are featuring the classic flavors of the Yellow Icatu variety. This lot was separated out for us, and we have roasted this just a bit darker than its predecessors to bring out the richness associated with this flavor profile. We suggest brewing this as an espresso to get the most out of the coffee, but whether you have it as a filter coffee, an aeropress, or an espresso, we think you’ll enjoy this limited offering from our friends in Brazil.
