Bossa Nova is a music genre originating from Brazil, which stems from Samba and fuses with Jazz but is played softer, more refined, and intimate - a perfect comparison to our Regional Samba.
We select a coffee lot from a single farm for each Bossa Nova offering, so the profile is regional, but each lot is from a single estate. The farms we rely on for this program include Santa Lucia, Santa Ines, Irmas Pereira, Fazenda IP, São Benedito, Fazenda Furnas and Fazenda Sertão, and the variety selected is yellow bourbon.
This regional coffee is harvested from June to August but is available all year round and represents the premium offerings of the Carmo de Minas growing area. Carmo de Minas has optimal conditions for high-volume specialty coffee production, with altitudes ranging 900 - 1300 masl, temperatures averaging 17 - 25ºCelsius, and rainfall averages of 1800mm per year.
Our Regional Bossa Nova has a profile that is sweet, balanced, and refined in structure - much like the music itself. It has a medium body and flavors of caramel, nut, orange, chocolate, red apple, and raisin, so this coffee can stand alone as a single origin or make a great vase in a blend.
