    Everything you love about Brazilian coffee

    Sitio Gamelao is a real find of a coffee. It's a natural Brazil of the Catuai varietal, produced by Sebastiao Eloi Miranda. It's slightly sweeter and richer than your typical Brazil, but still incredibly accessible and easy to drink. We think it holds up really well batch brewed or pulled through a cafetiere.

    As a guide expect a rich and sweet cup with low acidity. It's got a great dark chocolate depth to it, complemented by a bright strawberry and almond sweetness.

    Farm: Sitio Gamelao, Machada, Sul de Minas, Minas Gerais

    Varietal: Yellow and Red Catuai

    Elevation: 1150 MASL

    Brewing Options: V60, Chemex, Kalita, Syphon, Cafetiere, Aeropress and Drip Machine (Moccamaster, Wilfa Classic etc).

      How you can brew this coffee:
      V60, Chemex, Kalita, Syphon, Cafetiere, Aeropress and Drip Machine (Moccamaster, Wilfa Classic etc).

      The Producer:

      Sitio Gamelao is a small farm of around 30 hectares, headed by Sebastiao and Tereza Eloi Miranda. Coffee is the family trade for Sebastiao, having worked with it since he was 2 years old. Having previously picked for other farmers, Sebastiao bought his first piece of land at 25 years old, and planted one hectare of coffee. At the beginning each microlot was mixed together, with buyers favouring quantity over quality. With the tides turning in favour of high quality speciality coffee, Sebastiao is now able to produce 500 bags of speciality coffee a year, motivated by better pricing to focus on quality coffee.

      Picking and Processing:

      Each cherry is carefully picked by hand, and sorted by density in water tanks. The ripest, densest cherries are then sun-dried on a cemented patio with the skin and pulp left on, rigorously turned and maintained to prevent over-fermentation. Once dry, the cherries rest for one month before being hulled, graded and bagged.

      The Origin:

      Machado is located in the coffee growing region of Sul de Minas, in the south of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Half of the country's coffee production comes from this region, producing more coffee than any other country in the world. Most coffee in this region is grown on small farms, ranging from 10 to 100 hectares, and is a significant source of speciality grade coffee coming from Brazil.

      Minas Gerais is one of the coolest regions of Brazil, which has some of the highest altitudes of coffee growing in the country. Cherries develop more slowly in this cooler climate, contributing to the mild yet bright acidity of this cup.

      The Varietal:

      The Catuai varietal is a hybrid of Mundo Nova (grown for its high yields) and Caturra (grown for its smaller size), meaning coffee can be planted more densely, picked more easily, with higher productivity. It's popular to grow in Brazil, as well as Honduras, Costa Rica, Guatemala and more. It makes for a sweet cup with bright acidity.

      -------

      Your coffee will be roasted within 1-16 days of purchase, with a shelf life of 6 weeks (optimum serving point of 10-36 days). We recommend letting this coffee rest for at least 12 days before using.
