Roaster Notes: This coffee is subtle in flavour, which is unusual for a natural coffee. The flavours of clemantine, fig and dark chocolate are identifiable, but makes for a clean and juicy cup. This is a great coffee for those who like great flavour without the more eccentric flavours that a natural would normally bring. The dark chocolate is a constant across all coffee types. As an Espresso, the clemantine notes really shine through. As a filter, you can get a taste for the fig complementing the citrus.
Brazil - Cafeina Womens Group
As part of the Cocatrel Cooperative in Tres Pontas, Sul De Minas this group was formed for the female farmers who are part of the Cooperative. The Cafeina Group are made up of 21 % of the members of the Cocatrel Cooperative equating to 1154 women producers. The idea was to encourage the engagement of these female producers in the decision making process of the Cooperative. They are organised to have meeting every two months to improve their education and knowledge but also to increase their visibility in the coffee growing community and promote their involvement. Iandra Vilela who is head of the Cafeina group for Cocatrel was recognised this year with an award fro ‘Women in Coffee’. She won it for being an inspiration to other Women in the coffee industry in Brazil.
