Rosimeire and her husband, Carlos grew up in coffee-producing families and practically inherited their knowledge and passion for coffee. Nordic Approach has been working with Rosimeire since 2019, and this year we have featured a few different coffees from her farm because we’re such big fans! Sean got to visit in 2019, and the farm is a fantastic example of specialty coffee production in Brazil. This particular lot is made up of Red & Yellow Catuai, and was an extended-fermentation natural lot. This means the cherries were fermented for about 80 hours before being dried in a mechanical dryer - giving the cup a distinctive flavor even among Brazilian natural coffees!
We’ve been lucky enough to try coffee from Rosimeire a few times, and it's always exciting to see how different lots perform. Sitio Vargem #6 does not disappoint, with notes of brown sugar, apples, and caramel. While we want to tell you everything we love about this cup of coffee, we’ll let you try it yourself - just don't forget to leave a review!
