An espresso roast of a nutty, full-bodied Brazilian lot with notes of toffee, stewed plum and roasted almond.
We love a coffee with a cute story behind it.
Simply put, Pedro Santana was a banker in the 80's and in 1989, with the desire to live a slower and simpler lifestyle with his family, he acquired the land on which Cafundó now sits. "Cafundó" roughly translates to "very, very far away" and was given that name as a nod to its physical distance from the hustle and bustle of São Paulo.
Since then, Pedro and his wife, Delzute Araujo Mesquita, have won many accolades and recognition for their high-quality coffee. In 1999 he won the Best of Bahia competition and in 2006 the farm was recognised in the Cup of Excellence for the first time. This farm continues to impress and you can expect to see it pop back up on the shelves at Black Fox as we roll into future seasons.
This is an espresso roast that would probably favor a short, concentrated shot. Expect sticky sweetness, intense roasted nuttiness and the acidity of stewed plums!
