Fazenda Santuàrio Sul Yirgacheffe


Fazenda Santuàrio Sul Yirgacheffe bridges the gap between Ethiopia and Brazil, resulting in a one-of-a-kind coffee experience. The point that Yirgacheffe is a famous Ethiopian heirloom variety that is seen in a new light here, grown in Brazil, got us hooked. Layers of blueberry, hazelnut, and bergamot can be expected in this unique blend that boasts a sweetness reminiscent of candied almonds, and a soft, peachy acidity. The mouthfeel is velvety and silky, while the medium body perfectly balances the sensory experience. The journey from cherry to cup is an art, and at the heart of this blend lies the 92-hour Anaerobic Natural process. In this unique method, the coffee cherries undergo a controlled fermentation in an oxygen-tight tank for nearly four days. This meticulous process unlocks a clean cup, showcasing the dedication to excellence.
