We love the Legender series Brazils and the care they are getting before they are harvested. This incredible natural processed coffee from the Sitio Gamelao Estate grown by Sebastiao Miranda is truly more than we’ve often come to expect out of the largest coffee growing country in the world. This Brazil is inherently sweet, and added to that cane sugary sweetness is a rich overtone of dark chocolate and citrussy orange. You’re really going to like this one!

Sebastiao Eloi Miranda lives at Sitio Gamelao with wife Tereza. Having grown up around coffee he is extremely experienced and familiar with the business. He started working as a picker for other farms and at the age of 25, he bought his first piece of land and planted 1 hectare of coffee trees. Up until recently, Sebastiao used to mix all of his micro lots because buyers cared more about quantity as opposed to quality. Now, he produces 500 bags of Specialty Coffee annually, mainly Yellow Catuai. He sun dries most of the beans on a cemented patio and few bags worth on raised beds.
