About the Coffee
Fernando Nakao's family moved to the Cerrado Mineiro when he was five years old. They were motivated by the perception that the lands on which they worked in Catanduva no longer had the same productivity and potential. They began a new chapter in their lives in these lands that were, at the time, considered the a frontier for coﬀee growing. Today Fernando owns and operates Fazenda Morro Feio and considers himself a son of the Cerrado Mineiro. From his parents, he inherited a deep love of the land and coﬀee-planting. As a second generation coﬀee grower, he remains devoted to the region and land that welcomed him as a child. He hopes that his children continue the family tradition of coﬀee cultivation.
Processed by the traditional natural method (sun-dried in the whole fruit), Fazenda Morro Feio Natural is gently fruit-forward, with leading notes of dried persimmon, hibiscus flower and rich semi-sweet chocolate with undertones of agave syrup. The body is lightly syrupy, quite viscous, and the medium-intensity acidity is crisp, malolactic. The quiet finish is cleanly fruit-toned: dried persimmon with a hint of lemon-thyme.
There’s a 1-in-3 chance the coffee in your cup is from Brazil. It’s a huge country with a staggering coffee export — over 33% percent of the world’s coffee supply comes out of Brazil — and that doesn’t include the coffee they keep to drink themselves. Brazil has been at the top of the coffee export chain since the early 1800s when coffee farming overtook sugarcane as a cash crop. Read the Brazil Green Coffee Origin Report

A good utility coffee
by Scott McNamara
While a lower cupping coffee, this was a ling time favorite staple with our roastery and coffee shops. People continue to request the "Ugly Brown" and are sad when we mention its sold out . This was a great, robust "utility" coffee. We never got the apple cup notes, but again this was a solid, great coffee.
