Brazil Sitio Ambrozim - 12 oz.

We’ve fallen in love with coffees from the small farms of the Montanhas do Espírito Santo region of Brazil. They are more reminiscent of their distant East African botanical heritage than classic Brazilian coffees tend to be. Lovely acidity, round body, and ample sweetness characterize this offering from Sitio Amrozim. As espresso, it presents tangy fruit, sweet cocoa and toasted almond. As a drip coffee, expect chocolate and the subtler dried fruit layers to emerge, particularly as the cup cools.

Cormélio Ambrosini family first arrived to Brazil in the early 1900's from Italy.  He took after the family farming business and began depulping coffees 60 years ago. Today, his sons, Wagner and Antonio Luiz, run two small farm properties, Cachoeira Alegre and Sitio Ambrozim, respectively, which together add up to an area of 8 hectares.

Currently, 40% of the family's production is specialty coffees. Cormélio was largely responsible for introducing Wagner to coffee. In the early days, all the depulping was done manually, but it wasn’t until 2000 that the family invested in a more modern depulper, an added value that was encouraged by the local cooperative, Pronova.

According to Wagner, the family began to see the price difference per bag nine years ago and, since then, the Ambrozim’s coffee has stood out in quality, intending to leave a legacy for future generations.
