The Story

Brazil is arguably the most important coffee producer in the world, they certainly grow the most (by far!). We always have our Brazil Classico on the shelf for anyone who wants some of those 'classic' dark chocolate and nut flavours. But as many of you know, Brazilian coffee can showcase so much more than this, so we thought it was high time to start introducing you all to the sophistication this epic origin has to offer.

Sitio Da Torre is a stunning farm based in the Mantiqueira de Minas region of Brazil. Beginning in the 19th century with Antonio Coli who emigrated from Italy, the family still run and operate the farm four generations on. The current owner, Alvaro Antonio Pereira Coli, dedicates his life to the cultivation of high quality coffee crops, refining old methods and experimenting with new ones.

A great example of this is, unlike the great majority of coffee harvested in Brazil, all the coffee cherry on Sitio Da Torre is harvested by hand. Coffee is often mechanically harvested in Brazil, meaning ripe & unripe beans are collected together; Ultimately having a negative impact on overall quality which is avoided when the fruit is picked at full ripeness by hand.

Processing at Sitio Da Torre is under constant evaluation. Loosely, the farm produces 50% pulped naturals and 50% natural, though experiments in anaerobic fermentation and other methods are being trialled; in bags, buckets, silos and more, measuring consistency, reliability, and of course, cup profile. Over the years, this has netted the 29 Cup of Excellence wins alongside a number of other awards recognizing the quality and dedication the team give.

Once the ripe cherries have been identified and picked, they are taken down the hill to the drying patios, where a mix of raised beds and concrete patios are available to dry the cherry. Dry milling is done on the farm, with beans undergoing a further sorting and cleaning stage once they get to the Cocarive warehouse which is managed by Álvaro as well.
