Moreninha Formosa is named after one of the largest plots of the 3 that make up the farm Fazenda Aurea. These plots are located right outside the cities of Serra de Salitre, Minas Gerais, and Cerrado Mineiro; it is the specific and prime location where this amazing coffee is grown. The coffee trees in this region flourish at 3,900ft; at these elevations, slower growing trees produce more intensely flavored gourmet coffee beans.
After being harvested and processed, Moreninha Formosa coffee is raked and dried on sun bed, allowing hot, dry air to circulate over, under and around the cherries; they dry evenly to produce a full bodied coffee with a touch of earthiness. This Brazilian coffee will surprise your taste buds with a dark chocolate, cherry essence and hints of orange that emerge with our light-medium roast. When brewed, it produces a sweet cup with a gentle hint of nuttiness.
