Yellow Icatu Natural Coffee, Fazenda Rio Verde, Brazil
This coffee features a sweet taste and its fragrance includes notes of fresh walnuts and almonds. Its body becomes pronounced with smooth acidity. The natural processing means this coffee has a very well balanced, vibrant taste due to its pleasant acidity. It features a sweet body and rich blackberry undertones. Rio Verde was founded in 1887 and is one of the oldest farms in Brazil.
Located in the heart of the Mantiqueira de Minas Mountains, this 1500 hectares farm is a true natural sanctuary, where coffees are grown at elevations of up to 1300 meters above sea level, surrounded by virgin forests, waterfalls, springs and hiking trails. The Rio Verde Institute was created in 2003 to organise and encourage our employees’ community integration activities by motivating, supporting and participating in social and educational initiatives, becoming a reference in environmental education and involvement within its area of operation.”
