A superb lot from the legendary hills of Luis Pascoal and Daterra in Brazil.
Daterra can be seen as the golden standard in Brazilian Coffee farming. They have won multiple awards for innovation, sustainability and especially quality.
You may remember one particular lot from their farm that was Roasted by La Cabra, the YBSCM – Yellow Bourbon Semi Carbonic Maceration.
This one is the special Laurina lot. Laurina, or “Bourbon Pointu” is a rare varietal from the Reunion Islands of small, pointy beans that usually present a lower caffeine amount than other Arabica varietals. The microlot was processed with a anaerobic fermentation technique that enhanced the acidity, making it sparkling with notes of vanilla, orange and papaya, with a honey-like sweetness.
Roasted and shipped by our new local partner in Brazil, Paulo Lins and his beautiful project of ACERVO.
We have been in exchange with Paulo since a very long time and wanted to find a way to share his dedicated work in the Brazilian coffee-scene with you. In Brazil it is by law forbidden to roast coffee that is grown outside of Brazil, which brings a lot of limits and at the same time an incredible expertise for local varietals, soils and climates. Working hand in hand with some of the very best farmers in the country, Paulo is opening up a new world of Brazilian cup quality and especially diversity to us.
We are very proud to finally be able to share his work with you through those first microlots. Take a moment, clean your burrs, set your water to optimum, brew and enjoy!
