Coming from the hills of Alto Mogiana Mineira, El Dorado, Brazil, this single origin coffee is truly comforting and delightful. With a honey pulped natural processing, it further enriches the coffee’s character and brings notes of dark chocolate, mango, and raspberry.

It has earned RFA, 4C, and Premium Cup of Excellence certifications. In 2017, El Dorado proudly clinched the 16th spot in the Cup of Excellence Naturals Category. Moreover, they led the Microlots category at an AMSC event. Always pushing the boundaries, they continually embrace new drying processes like raised African beds and controlled fermentation.

Behind El Dorado’s coffee stands the devoted Faleiros family. Starting with Mr Laerce Franca Faleiros, who brings a 55-year-long coffee legacy. Alongside him, his wife, Maria Lucia Vilhena, adds to this rich tradition. Currently, their son, Elvis, manages the farm, preserving their heritage. Focused on sustainability and quality, he introduced coffee fermentation in 2014. Hence, he infused vibrant flavours from lemon, wine tangerine, and more.

Beyond their farm, El Dorado significantly impacts the coffee community. In 2001, Mr Laerce founded the Cocapil cooperative. This establishment serves as a vibrant hub for preparing and storing coffee. Concentrating on fine and speciality coffees, Cocapil notably processed over 300,000 bags of coffee in 2020. Consequently, they perfectly match the desired cupping profiles of the end customers. Finally, Ibiraci, their city, is a recognised haven for champion coffee producers, showcasing coffee production as its main economic forte.

    I was given this as a Christmas gift and it is excellent coffee! Since buying a coffee machine in September 2023 we have tried various coffee beans and these are by far the best. Deliciously rich and complex this has become our go to coffee.

    Simply the finest cup of handmade coffee I’ve ever had. Fresh, flavoursome and served by two really amazing baristas. So nice to find such quality and enthusiasm at a market coffee vendor, I’ll definitely be back!

    While everything I’d like to say has been said by countless customers, these are by far the best beans I’ve ever tried in the speciality market! I often drive 1hr+ each way just to buy these and have a fantastic chat with the owners!
