Legender Especial is a blend of coffees grown in the unique micro-regions of Machado, Poco Fundo and Campestre, located in Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Most coffee regions in Brazil are well known for large coffee plantations. Legender Especial goes in the opposite direction, consisting of small farms called sitios. All lots are purchased directly from growers committed to quality and willing to provide detailed information about their sitios, harvesting methods, drying techniques and other relevant information about their coffee.
This is a natural process coffee dried in the sun on patios, so the resulting fruity aroma and flavor are intensified from this raisining process. The flavor comes through as a magnificent sweet cherry mixed with dark chocolate and fading into a brown sugar sweetness to finish and linger. This is a coffee that you’ll want to sit and savor!
