Perfect as an everyday coffee, an introduction to the world of Specialty Coffee or just to enjoy!
The Luciano Tannuri from Fazenda Bela Vista continues our series of more classic filter coffees from Brazil. The previous coffees in this profile, such as the Fazenda Serrinha, Carmo de Minas, or Capim Branco, have already clearly shown that Brazil also produces very nuanced coffees that are perfectly suited as mild filter coffees. Luciano Tannuri fulfils exactly this promise, scoring with a mild nutty base note, as well as a nice sweetness that reminds us of chocolate.
Besides the location and the microclimate of the farm, it is above all the careful processing that ensures an excellent natural in the cup!
Our Yellow Catuai Lot was harvested by machine, with at least two passes. The first pass is done without jogging to harvest only the ripest cherries and avoid any fruit drop. The second pass is made 30 to 40 days later, just in time for the second ripening!
After harvesting, the coffee cherries are spread out in very thin layers on terraces for the first day. Here the coffee cherries dry under multiple rotations for 8 days before the coffee is taken to mechanical dryers for further processing. The coffee remains in the mechanical dryer for up to 3 days, after which it is bagged and stored.
Luciano Tannuri is named after the farmer behind this coffee. Luciano has been farming the Fazenda Bela Vista in the Cerrado Mineiro region since 2010. Initially devoted to conventional coffee, Luciano has gradually converted his farm to the cultivation of specialty coffee.
For him, it's all about the special relationship behind Specialty Coffee. For him, it's not just about coffee, but about the story of the producers that runs through the entire coffee value chain. It's a different way of seeing the value chain and understanding how the products are valued. He believes that the coffee of farmers who are passionate and dedicated to the quality of their coffee should be treated and valued as a speciality and not as a commodity.
