This is a Fine Cup grade Semi-Washed process coffee from Isaias Ferreira da Silva's farm, Sitio Alvorada do Grotão in the city of Serra Negra in Machado, Brazil. This farm, tucked away in a mountainous region and surrounded by natural forests in the Minas Gerais region in Southern Minas, covers 60 hectares at 1,200 masl and grows primarily two varieties: Mundo Novo and Red Catuai. The coffee is sent to the Pinhalense Dry Mill where it is sun-dried on cemented patios. The towns of Machado, Monto Santo, Intamogi, and Sao Sabastiao in southwest Minas Gerais hug the border with Sau Paulo. A generation ago coffees grown in this region would have been known simply as Santos after the famed coffee port 400 miles away, once less than a day’s journey on a railroad build by coffee farmers, for whom state border meant little when it came to growing coffee. Although Minas Gerais has been the largest coffee producing state in Brazil for decades, but before that, it was Sau Paulo. For 100 years, Sau Paulo was the king of coffee and Minas Gerais was better known for milk. In the government, when the two states flexed their combined political muscle, they were known as “coffee and milk.”
