Welcome to a new chapter in our journey through coffee origins. Today, we're thrilled to introduce you to our Slow Burn Blend, a harmonious concoction that carries within it the essence of innovation, sustainability, and the heart of Brazil. We're excited to take you behind the scenes of one of our partnering farms - Jaguara. This Brazilian gem has not only shaped our Slow Burn Blend but is also a beacon of sustainable coffee production.
Jaguara: A Legacy of Innovation:
The story of Jaguara began in 2001 when Antonio Wander, an agronomist and researcher, and two like-minded friends embarked on a coffee-planting venture. Fast forward to 2013, and Antonio's son, André Luiz, along with coffee expert Natália, stepped in, injecting new life into the farm. Located at Campo das Vertentes, an area historically rich in gold, Jaguara Farm covers 90 hectares and has embraced sustainable planting techniques that leverage nature's gifts.
Sustainable Techniques, Flavorful Results:
Jaguara Farm has mastered the art of producing natural coffees that boast enchanting notes of chocolate, plum, and an extraordinary sweetness. This isn't just by chance; it's the result of an unrelenting commitment to sustainability. Over the past six years, the farm has achieved an impressive 80% reduction in agrochemical usage. This feat has been accomplished through a multi-faceted approach, including the cultivation of coffee species with innate resistance to pests, strategic pruning to encourage sunlight penetration, and enhancing biodiversity both within the crops and the soil.
Innovation Meets Tradition: Slow Burn Blend:
Jaguara's dedication finds its way into our Slow Burn Blend, infusing it with a spirit that marries innovation with tradition. As you sip this blend, you'll experience a symphony of flavors echoing the farm's notes of chocolate and plum, kissed by its signature sweetness. But Slow Burn Blend isn't just about taste; it's about embracing sustainability in every cup.
Jaguara Farm's journey is a testament to the power of innovation and sustainable practices in coffee cultivation. Their story dances within every sip of our Slow Burn Blend, reminding us of the incredible journey our coffee makes from farm to cup. With chocolate and plum notes that linger on the palate, this blend is a tribute not only to flavor but also to the dedicated farmers who believe in harmonizing nature's rhythm with coffee production.
