Decaf: Brazil Dromedaire Cuvee
To say the Dromadaire Cuvée is our very own coffee would be a significant understatement. Dromadaire Cuvée is born on our own multi-award-winning farm, Fazenda Monte Verde, in Brazil’s Carmo de Minas region. Monte Verde was one of the first farms in Brazil to employ terracing as well as cutting-edge practices, such as satellite-guided, precision agriculture.
Our own farmers propagate the varietal seedlings, nurse them and plant them in different plots at varying elevations on the farm. We remove the skin from the coffee cherries, leaving the fruity mucilage around the seed and dry it on our patios. The Dromedaire Cuvée Decaf blend achieves a consistently uniform cup with chocolate and hazelnut aromas. In the cup, it translates to flavors of sweet nougat, milk chocolate and hints of pear paired with a substantial body – without the caffeine!
