Brazil Fazenda Rainha
PEANUT BUTTER & COCOA
A NOTE FROM THE ROASTER:
This Yellow Bourbon from São Sebastião da Grama is a perfect beautiful example of why I love coffees from Brazil – they’re sticky-sweet, smooth, and super approachable. It’s like drinking a dang liquid peanut butter cup y’all. If Barry White was a coffee he’d be this Fazenda Rainha and I can’t get enough of his love baby. Grab a bag of this Brazil and I guarantee you’ll be singing: (Rainha) you’re the first, the last, my everything.

Fazenda Rainha is managed by José Renato G. Dias, an agricultural engineer with a specialization in coffee production. The farm comprises 280 hectares, of which 200 hectares are planted with mostly Yellow Bourbon, some Icatu, Yellow Catuaí, Mundo Novo, and Acaiá. It is BSCA and Utz certified.
Coffee is processed at peak ripeness with handheld mechanical picking equipment over a cloth to avoid contact with the ground. After being harvested, the coffee cherry is depulped and spread on courtyards for drying. The coffee is dried slowly in the sun until reaching 11% humidity. After drying, the coffee is conditioned in wooden granaries.
All of Fazenda Rainha's employees reside on the farm and they are provided with health plans and unlimited hospital care. There is a school onsite for the workers' children called the Pedro Roza IT School.
Fazenda Rainha has been a finalist in Cup of Excellence Brazil in 2000, 2001, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, and was awarded first place in 2011.
Amidst the unbelievable landscape at Fazenda Rainha is a chapel designed by the renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemayer, and built by Fazenda Rainha's workers. The Chapel was one of Niemayer's last projects before he passed, just before turning 105 years old in December of 2012.
