Story of The Bean: This coffee is called the Mahogany lot because it grows on the Fazenda Matilde farm under a canopy of beautiful Mahogany trees. The coffee and Mahogany are inter-cropped to provide shade for the coffee, bird habitats and erosion control. The trees are also a source of income for the farm, as Mahogany trees can be sold for wood after 20 years of growth.
Our roaster visited the hillsides on this farm where this coffee is hand-picked, a rarity in Brazilian production. During tastings on the farm, he hand-selected this lot and we are excited to carry this unique Brazilian coffee for years to come.
