Celebrating the work of Virgulino Muniz, one of our trusted long-term partners in Brazil. His coffee is incredible. It has a consistent, distinct dark sugar sweetness and complex chocolate notes; A perfect showcase of Brazilian coffee.
Das Almas has been in Virgulino’s family since 1942 and visiting his farm is always a welcome experience for us. Located at 1,200 masl with mineral rich soil covering 109 hectares of rolling hills. Virgulino and his team are dedicated to environmental sustainability, with various projects currently underway. Including ecosystem preservation and raising awareness of this in the local community, along with support to a local children's care institution.
The coffee cherries are hand-picked and sun dried on raised beds or patios with their fruit fully intact. This enables the flavours of the pulp and sweetness of the mucilage to impart into the bean.
