This coffee is incredibly delicious, showing the potential of what Brazilian coffee can be beyond the "standard" taste profile of low acidity, chocolates & nutty. This lot possesses complexity, with a very sweet base reminding us of chocolates & almonds. The aroma diffused from opening the bag will greet you with fresh berries. Mouthfeel is creamy & finish is lasting. The Santa Alina Farm is in the Vale da Grama Region of Sao Paulo. The land ranges 885 hectares, with 257 hectares devoted to coffee production. Within the area also contains 70 houses which are home for 30 families who work & contribute daily to Vale da Grama. The farm’s annual output reaches 6,500 bags, with a majority of them coming from micro-lots, which is the reason why Fazenda Santa Alina has consistently managed to grow some of the finest specialty coffees of the region. In 1907, the Fazenda Santa Alina was acquired by the brothers, Joaquim Bernardes da Silva Dias, & Lindopho de Caravalho Dias & has since been family owned. During the 1930s, Joaquim Bernardes de Caravalho took over the farm and increased coffee production, mainly red bourbon trees were grown. Joaquim Bernardes da Silva Dias died in 1935. One year later, Joaquim Bernardes da Silva II was born, bearing the same name as his deceased grandfather. Lucia Maria da Silva Dias (Tuca) left the farm at a young age to live in São Paulo, where she lived as a successful architect & initially did not intend to return to the farm. After the death of her grandfather (Joaquim Bernardes de Caravalho), the Fazenda family planned to let Santa Alina rent out the coffee they had been passionately pursuing since 1907. In 2010, Tuca returned to Vale de Grama. Since then she manages the farm with her business partner, Rodrigo Fernandes.
