Dive in the exquisite Brazilian Valdinei😍 a captivating coffee from the heart of Matas de Minas. Crafted by Valdinei Rezende, a dedicated producer who began his journey in 1996, this specialty coffee is a testament to years of passion and commitment. In 2014, Valdinei entered the specialty market, and by 2017, he relocated to Araponga's rural zone to enhance the quality of his post-harvest processes.🤩

Managing a 9-hectare area alongside his wife and partners, Valdinei brings you a Pulped Natural Red Catuai, a honey-processed gem that undergoes a meticulous 10-15 days of fermentation and drying on raised beds in shaded conditions. This process leaves around 50% or more of the mucilage intact, resulting in a coffee with a honey-like appearance and a nuanced flavor profile.🌿

Matas de Minas, responsible for approximately 24% of Brazil's coffee production, is a region characterized by small family-run operations. Arabica coffees, grown in areas with diverse topography and altitudes between 600-1,200 meters, showcase a range of flavors thanks to the region's artisanal processes and mild climate.

Best enjoyed as filter or espresso, this sweet Brazil coffee is a clean, smooth honey-processed Red Catuai. Immerse yourself in its refreshing and sweet notes of semi-sweet chocolate, stone fruit, and a pleasant citrus undertone, making it a delightful cup any time of the day.☕
