Kaparao - Brazil
This coffee comes from various farms in the Serro do Caparao region of Brazil, in collaboration with Burgeon Specialty coffee which helps small producers in the area.
Caparao is a mountainous region surrounded by the native rainforest of Mata Atlantica. It's unique for having a lower average temperature than the surrounding coffee growing regions. This microclimate gives high quality coffee through a slower maturation of coffee cherries and a later-than-average harvest all the way up to November and December.
Region: Serro do Caparao, Brazil
