From the roaster:
It has been a long time since we have featured a Brazilian coffee as a single origin, and we are excited to do so with this organic from the Poco Fundo region of Minas Gerais. Cooperativa dos Agricultores Familiares de Poço Fundo e Região (COOPFAM) is an association of small-scale farmers located in the state of Minas Gerais in southeastern Brazil. The group was formed from a collective desire to improve the living standard of farmers, and to reduce poverty and emigration. In 1991, seventy-six families united to form the cooperative, determined to increase the productivity of their small plots and sustain the quality of family-oriented agriculture in the region.
This coffee is easy drinking with lower acidity and lots of sweetness and body. It is great as both drip coffee or as an espresso!
I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
