Ripe dark cherry, orange chocolate, cacao nib and caramel

Located in the mountainous region of Sul De Minas, Sitio Nossa is perfectly situated to grow coffee in Brazil. The small 46 hectare farm - of which 26 hectares are coffee producing - has been under the ownership of Rogério Gil Lemos since 1999, after leaving his previous profession of dentistry and life in Sao Paulo behind. With the help of his wife Norimar Sampaio they purchased the farm from his niece and renamed it in honour of his mother-in-law who was devoted to the saint it is named after.

They had their first harvest in 2000 and since then have invested in planting new coffee plants as well as rubber trees for diversification. During the harvest the farm can produce 1200 bags per year. The farm has an array of fruit trees and an area of forest reserve in line with Brazilian law to ensure the protection of the environment. On the farm there are 4 permanent members of staff who help Rogério manage and run the farm. Since taking over Rogerio has fallen in love with coffee and is continually looking at ways to improve the quality they produce.

All our coffee is sold as whole beans, which we recommend for optimum flavour and freshness. If you don’t own a grinder you can buy one here, or you can specify that you’d like us to grind it for you in your Basket.
