Jaguara farm in the Campo das Vertentes region of Brazil
Excellent traditional Brazilian flavour notes of rich chocolate
We visited this farm in 2015, apparently quite an accomplishment according to the owners, because it is so hard to reach. It took us some time to get there using GPS, but we made it!
After our visit we received samples just when we started with the first ideas for Keen Coffee. During cupping we knew right away this was a winner, a typical nutty Brasil, but never did we have such a nice and pleasant acidity to the side, yum!
The Jaguara farm started with three friends (Antônio Wander Garcia, André Luíz Garcia, Rubem Carlos Lima) in 2001, when they planted the first coffee trees in Campo das Vertentes region. The name of the farm originates from an important Quilombola community, named Jaguara. It is situated next to Sao Joao del Rei, a very important historic town in the colonization of Brazil. It’s famous for it’s gold extraction and never had a tradition in coffee culture.
Due to the cold weather in Campo das Vertentes, the maturation of the coffee is late and slower, which brings more sweetness to the coffee and improves the quality
