  • Unlike most coffee produced in Brazil, La Liberdade has been picked by hand. This is the most labour intensive and costly method, but results in the highest quality lots.

This coffee is heavy bodied, with dark chocolate and stone fruit.

This special micro-lot coffee comes from Fazenda Progresso, a beautiful farm located in the heart of Brazil's Bahia region. This farm is surrounded by the Chapada Diamantina National Park, known for its stunning mountainous cliff formations. Fazenda Progresso has been in the Borré family since 1984, and is currently run by the very motivated, third-generation farmer Fabiano Borré, who takes a hands-on approach to every aspect of coffee production.  

700 hectares of land at Fazenda Progresso are planted out with coffee. At harvest time, this particular micro-lot was carefully hand picked and then processed via the pulped natural method: the coffee cherry’s skin and fruit were removed and the sticky, parchment-covered beans were laid out to dry on cement patios and regularly raked to ensure an even and consistent dry.

Our head roaster Toshi spent a week in Brazil earlier this year, and was lucky enough to spend time with Fabiano Borré. Together, they tasted many varieties of coffee, grown on different plots of the farm. Overall, Toshi was really impressed with the quality; the coffees were incredibly clean, sweet and balanced. This coffee, La Liberdade (meaning 'freedom'), was Toshi's absolute favourite.
