Sitio das Nascentes - 1

The beautiful region of Espirito Santo is home to many of the most interesting coffees that come out of Brazil, so we were very excited to explore the area in 2017 and visit a number of producers. One farmer we met was José Antônio Pasti, owner of the farm Sítio das Nascentes. The family selectively pick the cherries, passing through the fields several times to collect only the fully ripe fruit. The harvest in this region happens a bit later in the year than the rest of Brazil, and natural processing has traditionally been the norm. This lot, however, has been mechanically washed, which gives it a fresh, clean cup profile that allows the natural terroir of the region to shine through. The farm has been pushing to produce speciality coffee since 2005 and as the quality of its output has improved, so too has the price it commands, allowing the team to invest more into equipment and machinery to further elevate the quality of their product.
