Brazil – Cup of Excellence #5 – Catuai 144 – Natural


Farmer: Jose Renato Rodrigues Alves

Cup of Excellence is the most prestigious competition and auction for high quality coffees. The level of scrutiny that Cup of Excellence coffees undergo is unmatched anywhere in the specialty coffee industry. Each year, thousands of coffees are submitted for consideration, with winning coffees sold in global online auctions at premium prices.

We were lucky enough to secure the 5th place coffee from the 2020 Cup of excellence in Brazil. The winning farm is from the Rodrigues family called “Vista Alegre” which roughly translates to “Enjoyable view”.

The second generation of the family has decided to take a quality driven approach to farming and has transformed the farm to now be the leading example of quality focused farming in the region. This lot was selectively hand picked with great attention to detail applied to the drying and storing of the coffee. A very complex coffee displaying a broad range of flavours and an inherent sweetness that lingers on the palate.

A fantastic coffee that you don’t want to miss out on.

Tasting Notes: Candy sweetness, macadamia and red grape. Clean, complex and refreshing with a smooth creamy body.
