What is it good for? A great coffee if you enjoy a classic taste profile. Espresso is syrupy and sweet and filter brings out notes of dried red berries and Irish cream.
Additional Notes: Bom Jesus is another coffee sourced through Cal's Coffee who import direct from their family farms: this is great for everyone as the farmer who can sometimes be poorly rewarded for their quite heroic efforts gets a better price for their coffee and we get to bring you a unique coffee.
Fazenda Bom Jesus is the work of the couple Gabriel and Flavia Lancha Oliveira. With a long heritage in coffee culture both are grandchildren of coffee producers. They themselves passed their love and care on to their sons, Lucas and Gabriel junior who are also dedicated full-time to the farm. In 1984 they formed The Labareda Group, diversifying into various rural activities although coffee is still the most foremost in family hearts and indeed remains their main crop.
Fazenda Bom Jesus is located in Cristais Paulistas in the Alta Mogiana Region. Gabriel and Flavia are more than just a farming couple. Their objective is to sustainably develop their region from a social and economic point of view. Fazenda Bom Jesus was a founder of the Alta Mogiana Specialty Coffee Association – AMSC. It promotes a greater conscience with regard to speciality coffee in the region as well as developing better farm practices.
