This offering represents our second-ever foray into a direct sourcing relationship. As Bootstrap has grown as a company, the ability to move into purchasing coffee directly from producers has become more available to us. We are incredibly proud to bring this unique coffee to you!
Our Coffees is run by the de Oliveira family, and operates four farms near Campos Altos, Minas Gerais (in the Cerrado Mineiro region). They are incredibly forward-thinking producers, and control quality at every level. All the coffees are processed on their own farms. Through experimentation and consistent cupping feedback, they've developed innovative processing techniques that have yielded surprising results. Some of the lots we've cupped have tasted very little like your standard Brazil profile--they were bursting with ripe red fruits and a lively acidity! They also export their own coffees from Brazil and then import their coffees into the US and Europe with offices in both California and Hamburg, respectively.
We have a lot of respect for the de Oliveira family for their sustainable business model, environmentally-friendly practices and their commitment to being a leader in pushing specialty coffee forward in Brazil.
In the cup, expect an incredibly creamy body. Look for tart red fruits, dark
chocolate and a crisp, green apple acidity. This coffee is incredibly complex, and opens up new layers of flavor as it cools. This WILL change what you think about Brazilian coffees!
All coffees are available in whole bean only.
