Brazil's Nossa Senhora comes from a neighbourhood named Mantiqueira . The name Mantiqueira derives from a native Portuguese word meaning "mountains that cry" or "where the clouds lie". Minas are the mines of precious minerals at the feet of the crying mountains embracing the clouds. From this blessed land, named Sitio Nossa Senhora, after the Blessed Virgin Mary, Peace and Blessings upon Her, these coffees spring forth.
Guatemala's La Bolsa sits between two mountains in the region of Huehuetenango, which provide a very stable, humid micro-climate. This combined with the limestone rich soils give the coffee a very unique profile with a rich syrupy body and plenty of malic and citric acidity. Coffee is fermented for between 18 and 24 hours and is then cleaned of mucilage, graded in channels and soaked overnight. This region traditionally did not grow coffee until 1968 when Dr. Jorge Vides, a distinguished medical professional, bought this land and begin framing it. We thank you for your passion and pursuit of quality and community development Dr, Jorge. Look for sweet molasses notes chocolate milk and smooth satin body.
