Some of the best Brazilian coffees I have ever tasted come from the Heringer Family. After visiting and meeting Walter and Fernando a few years back it has been my mission to get my hands on some of their coffee. They are difficult to get ahold of and I am over the moon to be able to offer this one to you!!
I love the flavours produced by Yellow Coffee Fruit trees. This lot slaps hard. It's a tropical fruit bomb. Don't sleep.
From the Importer:
Sitio Vista Alegre are two small farms by the same name. One is run by uncle Walter Heringer and the other by nephew Fernando Heringer. We took their best lots and blended together to make this coffee. These farms are on the western wall of the Pico da Bandeira National Park. Their farms are at very high altitudes but tucked in neatly into the mountain side in a way that their coffee trees have some protection from the wind. The picking here is done selectively and the drying is meticulous on raised beds. This region has always had high potential but not many farmers doing good practices, these to bucked the trend. They are some of the highest quality producers in Caparaó for sure, their attention to detail and dedication to quality is special.
