Brazil - Para ela
Origin : Brazil
Region : Campos Altos
Farm : Serrinha
Varietal : Catigua
Altitude : 1 200 m
Process : Natural, dried on raised beds
Tasting notes : Maple syrup, almond
The Para ela is a fairly classic coffee. In its tasting profile there is sugar and nuts. Its syrupy side mixed with sugar notes reminds us of maple syrup. Right on time for the season! The almond balances it all out.
Para ela is a community project of our partner Jose Maria in Brazil, in the community of Campos Altos. It aims to support women in the coffee culture near this municipality. Para ela means "for her" and represents a harvest picked by hand and processed exclusively by women who are paid 50% more than the regional average.
Hand picking and sorting helps to perfect each harvest and creates special micro-lots that highlight the work of the project members each time.
The financial disparity between women and men in Brazil is at the heart of this initiative.
This is the second year in a row that we are buying bags of Para ela. We are very proud to be part of this project.
