Bom Jardim, Anaerobic

Stewed strawberry, maraschino cherry, funky fruits & sweetness.

Utilising his 49 years of farming experience, Josué captured our attention with this flavour-packed micro-lot entered into the Best SanCup competition.

Any preconceptions you have about ‘Brazilian coffee’ are going to be blown away by this small competition lot. Josué put his ripe Yellow Catuai cherries into airtight barrels and, carefully tracking their temperature and Ph, allowed them to ferment for 72hrs in this anaerobic environment. Cherries proceeded onto patios for 3 days to lose further moisture before undergoing a final 72hrs of mechanical drying to reach 11% moisture. The result is a fruit explosion, far from the classic chocolate and nut flavours we normally anticipate from Brazil. Enjoy!

More about Josué

As part of the SanCoffee collective, Josué Pereira Figueiredo brings an incredibly detailed knowledge of coffee tree varieties. Graduating as an agronomist at just 25years old back in the early 70’s, he was closely involved as a researcher with Brazilian institutes to evaluate the performance of coffee varieties on-farm. Establishing Bom Jardim in parallel, he put that academic knowledge to work in practice, planting out his estate with a wide array of coffee trees.

Bom Jardim now stretches accross a vast 770ha with 230ha of that covered by organised orchard-like rows of coffee trees. At 1000masl, the relatively flat landscape allows for easy access to the trees by mechanised harvesters, critical in delivering the quality, volume and sustainably competitive prices that make coffee from this region such a cornerstone of the specialty world.

The Next Generation

Josué & son Lucas

Josué’s son, Lucas Pereira Figueiredo, now joins his father in managing not only the 230ha of coffee farming but the surrounding 154ha of preservation. With a strong focus on preserving the nature around them and the wellbeing of the 30+ workers who help run the estate, this is a coffee that we’re very excited to share with you!
