Background Details

This coffee is sourced from Fazenda Floresta. A family owned farm operating in the state of Bahia, Brazil near the Chapada Diamantina National Park, known for its mountainous cliff formations (chapada) and 19th century diamond mining (diamantina). Coffee is biodynamically cultivated, which is a holistic approach to agriculture where the farm is managed as an interconnected organism that generates its own fertility through diverse cover-cropping and the integration of manure from livestock raised on the farm. Biodynamic goes beyond organic practices including applications of homeopathically treated compost based on the rhythms of nature.
