The rare, fresh hit of lemon makes this coffee unique, with a buttery, creamy body, caramel sweetness, and notes of deep chocolate.
Our first direct trade coffee and the best we’ve tried out of Brazil. We selected this coffee for its completely distinct flavour profile. The rare, fresh hit of lemon in Jaguara makes this beautiful coffee completely unique. You’ll also find a buttery, creamy body, caramel sweetness, and notes of deep chocolate.
We visited this Jaguara farm, remotely located in Campo das Vertentes . The cold weather in the region slows the maturation of the coffee which brings it more sweetness and improves its overall quality, we’ve never tasted anything quite like it from Brazil!
All of our coffees are roasted to order and shipped whole bean to ensure maximum freshness.

The Jaguara farm was started by three friends in 2001, when they planted the first coffee trees in the Campo das Vertentes region.
The name of the farm originates from an important Quilombola community, named Jaguara. The farm is next to Sao Joao del Rei, famous for it’s gold extraction but with no history of coffee culture.
This coffee from the Jaguara farm is our very first direct trade, and the best Brazilian coffee that we’ve ever tasted.
