About this coffee :

It might surprise you to learn that Brazil is home to the largest population of Japanese outside of Japan. There are currently around 1.5 million people of Japanese extraction living in the country, and in many ways, the culture of Japan has seeped into Brazilian culture in diverse and surprising ways. What you also may not know is that Japanese-Brazilians are seamlessly tied to coffee production in the country. 

One of the main challenges to coffee production in the Cerrado Mineiro currently is the borer beetle, which attacks coffee cherries just as they begin to develop. The borer sets up house in the seed, feeds on the coffee fruit and reproduces inside.

The only effective product for treating borer – endosulfan – has recently been forbidden by the Brazilian government.

As such, Minami family farms have engaged in integrated pest management in order to follow the borers' evolution and act at exactly the right time to prevent the beetle from attacking the plant. This has changed some agricultural management techniques on the farm and introduced new interventions. One key activity for avoiding borer infestation is an extremely effective and simple post-harvest technique in all coffee plots.

At the end of every harvest, all coffee trees are stripped of all remaining fruit, as the borer inside the cherries that were not harvested migrate to new fruits that are being formed and this stage normally happens in December and January. This technique is widely used across Central America, where endosulfan use has been banned for many years.

Our preferences on this coffee are the Aeropress or pour over! You'll get a pronounce flavours of caramel & milk chocolate from the classic Brazilian coffee, finish with orange rind aftertaste. The perfect morning cuppa.
