Fazenda Passeio (Brazil)
Naturally processed, 100% Topazio from Brazil's most renowned coffee producing region. A fine example of a chocolaty, nutty Brazilian coffee.
High in the rainy reaches of the fertile and mountainous Sul de Minas region, sits Fazenda Passeio. Owned by the Vieira Ferreira family for three generations, the farm is now managed by Adolfo Vieira Ferreira, whose attention to detail and commitment to producing outstanding speciality coffee is second to none. In addition to building a skilled workforce and maintaining a thriving local community, Fazenda Passeio has a proud heritage of sustainability and environmental protection.
To guarantee quality, Passeio’s coffee is harvested only when the cherries reach an advanced stage of ripeness. All cherries are hand-picked by highly skilled workers, then natural lots are immediately dried in the sun on the farm’s extensive patios with the cherry flesh still attached to its seed, typically producing a fruitier, wilder cup.
The farm cultivates several coffee varietals - including Mundo Novo, Catuaí, Acaiá, Icatú, and Bourbon. This particular coffee is a 100% Topazio, which is harvested and processed separately from other lots to maintain its own distinct characteristics. These cherries ripen to a deep yellow, reminiscent of the yellow topaz gemstone, which inspires their name.
