This coffee comes from the Bourbon variety of coffee trees, and more specifically from the red variety, the mother of Arabica. The name "Bob-o-Link" is a tribute to a species of migratory bird which, on its journey from Patagonia to the northern hemisphere, has difficulty surviving. The name was chosen because respect for the environment and people is at the very heart of the Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza project.
Bob-o-Link coffee has a profile halfway between a Brazilian nature with chocolate notes and a Central American nature with fruitier notes. Its character adds finesse and sweetness on the palate. It has a round, fruity body with notes of apple, pineapple and lemon. There are also hints of caramel and chocolate.
The production of this Bob-o-Link coffee is economically, ecologically and socially sustainable. It's a huge challenge, given that Brazil is one of the world's largest coffee-producing countries. The basis of the project was the creation of a farm, which today has become the way of life for 50 neighboring coffee growers working in the production of Bob-o-link coffee.
The farmers use the F.A.F. (Fairtrade Access Fund) model, which means that the farms agree to follow a quality charter that focuses on these three fundamental values (economic, ecological and social). In addition, the farms undertake to use no chemicals, to plant trees to provide natural shade for the coffee trees, to dig irrigation channels to conserve water, to install African beds and sorting machines, to hand-pick the cherries and to learn to taste their coffees themselves. Farmers are also encouraged to grow more than just coffee, so as not to become dependent on it. Several checks are carried out on the soil, water and workers to ensure that the entire production process follows the FAF charter.
The Bob-o-Link coffee project was initiated by Marcos Croce and Silvia Barretto. After a stay in the USA, they decided to take over the family farm (which was an intensive monoculture). The couple had the courage to wipe the slate clean and start afresh. To mark this change, they renamed the farm "Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza". Together with their neighbors, they have also made every effort to produce top-quality coffee. The coffee comes from a hybrid variety of red Bourbon. The coffee trees are grown at high altitude (between 900 and 1300 m). To ensure the quality of the coffee, the cherries are hand-picked after a meticulous selection process. The cherries are then naturally processed and dried on African beds.
This coffee is roasted using an artisanal slow roasting process.
