Juicy, sweet and sugary with dark chocolate, grapefruit and praline flavors. Great for fans of dark roasted coffee!
Fazenda IP was first purchased in 1967, by Isidro Pereira, father of Luiz Paolo Dias Pereira. (Fazenda IP takes its name from Isidro's initials.) Luiz was pursuing an education in agriculture at the time the farm came into the family, but after five years, he joined his father to expand production and improve quality.
By 1974, Luiz began expanding Fazenda IP: It now covers an area of 720 hectares—500 percent growth over the farm's original size. This estate cultivates Yellow Catuai, Yellow Catucai, Acaia, and Yellow Bourbon. The coffee is processed using both the natural and honey method. Nestled outside the city of Carmo de Minas, the farm sits at a range of 950–1200 meters. The higher altitude favors a slow ripening of cherry and permits selective picking, which are decisive factors to produce coffees of exceptional quality.
Sales from this coffee will benefit the CriaCarmo project initiated by CarmocCoffees. CriaCarmo provides swimming, karate, chess, and futbol lessons as well as other social opportunities to underprivileged and at-risk youth in the coffee- growing region of Carmo de Minas. $0.10/lb of green beans goes directly to support CriaCarmo's more than 230 children between the ages of 7 and 17.
