Additional Notes: Our first ever direct trade coffee and boy have we started with a bang. From an amazing family run farm in Pedregulho, Alta Mogiana. Sao Paulo.
Sourced through Cal's Coffee who import direct from their family farms: this is great for everyone as the farmer who can sometimes be poorly rewarded for their quite heroic efforts gets a better price for their coffee and we get to bring you a unique coffee.
