Brazil Minas Gerais
As a honey process coffee, the toffee and peanut notes are present and enjoyable. As a light roast, this yellow bourbon coffee variety gives a bright and sweet cup with tasting notes of honey, pecan, and orange peel, and a lingering and pleasant toffee finish.
Carmo de Minas in the state of Minas Gerais is a coffee region through and through, meaning that the lives of almost every resident is somehow touched by coffee—including local children. In an effort to provide social and educational opportunities for the young family members of many of the coffee growers, pickers, and mill employees in the region, coffee development and exporting company CarmoCoffees established a program called CriaCarmo, which offers a range of enrichment activities to at-risk and underprivileged youth in Carmo de Minas. Sales from this coffee will benefit the CriaCarmo project, providing direct support to more than 230 children between the ages of 7 and 17.
