Aloízio and Guilherme produce varietals Red Acaiá, Mundo Novo, Red and Yellow Catuaí. His Yellow Catuaí is the coffee we call Flor de Jasmin. We, from KAVAZ BRAZIL, already reserved for every year this same coffee. It has a very complex profile due to the high altitude where it grows: 1.460 meters, and all the special care Aloizio and his partner Guilherme give to their farm.
When we met these friendly farmers in July 2021, they told us, to our surprise, that we bought their coffee in its first birth. It was planted in 2017 and in 2020 it was harvested for the first time and sent to us. The photos below are precise of the plantation of Flor de Jasmin – Yellow Catuaí. As you can see in the photos, trees look very healthy, beautiful, and well cared for in their second crop. We got their whole production of this year. And in this second birth of this plantation results are even better than the first one. The cupping score is 87/89. Sitio Santo Antonio was not affected by the frosts, due to the altitude, as frosts usually burn trees at lower levels. Their region is called “Mantiqueira de Minas” which is officially recognized in Brazil as the region of high-quality coffees.
