Sandra Vallejo is part of an association made up of small coffee producers in Santuario, Risaralda. It only has 40 active members and are very strict with the coffees they receive from their members (only 84+ coffees). This has helped their community push coffee quality up and that is how we found Sandra, a women that had to take over the farm when her husband died 6 years ago. Mother of 2 children, she had to learn fast about coffee and found a strong support in the association. With their help and the natural benefits of her land, a beautiful 5 hectares farm producing coffee and plantain, that is surrounded by the Tatama National Park, she has been able to offer her first 85+ coffee.

The Cerrado Mineiro Region is a world recognized high quality coffee producing origin – the first “Designation of Origin” in Brazil, located in northwest of Minas Gerais State. Having well-defined seasons – a hot, wet summer and a pleasantly dry winter – is a strong characteristic of the region. The coffee plantations are cultivated in areas with altitudes varying between 800 and 1,300 meters, the result being high quality coffees with a unique identity. The coffees are “Origin and Quality Guaranteed” by the Cerrado Mineiro Region – D.O. Regulatory Board. The production is allied to the care of the environment and the rational use of agricultural inputs. The training of employees, attention to every detail, and the affection for farming are the secret for the production of specialty coffees. This coffee has a medium acidity, a dense and velvety body, a long aftertaste and flavours of dried fruits, molasses, cocoa and nuts.

A really yummy blend, my favourite so far! Soft with no bitter taste but strong. Highly recommend
Always look forward to this cup of coffee pouring out of my cafeteria. Delicious and smooth.
3 scoops and almond milk.. delicious
Great flavour profile for an every day espresso blend. Works really well for both milk based drinks and standalone. Recipe that works well for me: 18g in 37g out in ~28s.
I'm really enjoying this coffee and would recommend it as a daily blend.
This is the third blend I've tried and although I find the fruity, earthy varieties novel this to me is the quintessential coffee flavour I'd go back to. Crisp bitterness, dark chocolatey without a hint of acidity. Perfect!
