Since we first cupped it, one thing was clear about this coffee - we love it! From its distinct cacao aromatics to its subtle notes of tropical fruit on the palette, Roseira is a stunning coffee whether used for espresso or with milk.
Sourced via our friends at Southland Coffee Merchants, Roseira is named after the farm from which it is produced operated by Leda Aparecida. Inspired by their natural environment and after receiving a plot of land from the farmer they used to work for as labour, Leda and José Edvaldo da Silva have dedicated the past 20 years to the sustainable cultivation of their specialty coffee. Leda and Jose strive to preserve their diverse surroundings of natural springs and forests, while producing high quality coffee beans. Their dedication to sustainable farming practices is a high priority.
Mantiqueira de Minas region is located in the southern part of Minas Gerais state, a region naturally gifted with unique conditions for the production of specialty coffees, with fertile soils, a predominance of sunlight and high elevations that vary between 900 and 1, 500 meters.
