It is a completely different face of Brazilian coffee, through a 100% natural process: the coffee cherries dry naturally under the sun, on patios or African beds to guarantee a lot of body, sweetness and excellent character. It is in the heart of Brazil, in the State of Cerrado, that the Mundo Novo, Catuai and Bourbon varieties allow the perfect blend of Arabicas: a guaranteed powerful character.
The different farms that allow the cultivation of the mixture are between 800 and 1,300 meters are often grouped into families with individual plots of less than 2 hectares. Most of the farms are handed over from father to son for several generations to guarantee regular income for families.
The IPE tree, known by other names, is a tropical tree in the Bignoniaceae family. In other words, it is a tree with a small trunk, rather short in height, with hundreds of leaves and flowers of various colors that change with the seasons: red, yellow, blue, pink, orange…
The tree is currently only known from Brazil. Moreover, once the tree is old, it is used as quality wood to make parquet floors, boards. IPE stands for “Ebony from Brazil”. This tree must be maintained with great care, quality and precision to have the desired effect in terms of flowers or wood as an end product.
