SINGLE ORIGINS BY CUVÉE

TRANSPORT YOURSELF TO BRAZIL

Following his father’s footsteps, producer Ricardo Tavares has dedicated his life to the coffee industry. It was always Ricardo’s dream to own and operate coffee farms, and, years after beginning work in coffee, he acquired Fazenda Primavera, which is the ultimate fulfillment of that goal. The 980 hectares planted with coffee are not just a farm but a property he and his team have built into a regional exemplar of the possibility of specialty coffee production in Brazil.

THE JOURNEY

Visiting a farm first-hand allows our Founder, Mike, to build and strengthen his relationships with Cuvée Coffee farmers, which ultimately produces a healthier partnership.

To ensure the end product is exceptional, these trips also act as an audit of a farm's operations. Mike checks to make sure no corners are cut, and that they are sustainable. Farms that Cuvée Coffee uses must also be good stewards of the land. Mike inspects each farm to make sure they are being environmentally conscious and following best practices.

QUALITY CONTROL

During an educational program with a group of producers, Mike sorts coffee cherries by ripeness. There are 100 "dimples" on this wooden board. Random cherries are placed in each dimple then sorted by ripeness. This helps determine the percent of successful picking and the goal is to have 100 perfectly ripe cherries. It's harder than it looks!

DE-PULPING

After picking and sorting, coffee cherries go through a depulper to separate the seed from the fruit. The fruit is eventually put back into the farm in the form of compost.

FERMENTATION

This is part of the post-harvesting process and is done between de-pulping and drying. Fermentation helps remove the layer of mucilage, a sugary substance that surrounds the coffee bean and is a critical step for a "fully washed" coffee.

DRYING

Here, a farmer rakes coffee beans that are drying on a patio. Raking is important to ensure uniform drying and help keep the beans from molding.

CUPPING

Pouring hot water over coffee grounds creates a "crust," which is broken and smelled, then the coffee is tasted. The uniformity of the aroma and flavor between cups are used to score the coffee on a 100 point scale. During this process, Mike's goal is to pick the absolute best coffee the farm has to offer.

Good cup of everyday classicness

A fantastic selection of beans that hit the mark right from the start (closest to roast date). It only got better as the beans rested over time and morning brews got tastier. Would definitely consider buying these beans included in my next order here.

Best Coffee EVER!!!!

The Brazil coffee is so smooth. My husband had to stop drinking coffee because he always had to put more cream & sugar then there was coffee. With this coffee he uses only a little sugar. No after taste. It is very good coffee.. Thank you!!!

Best cup o’ joe this side of the Mississip. I press this with my French fists almost every morning. Pairs well with a blueberry spliff.
