  • The Producer

    Premier Cru, who are the producers of this amazing B23 Sugarcane coffee, have created a state-of-the-art coffee mill and processing plant and are devoted to producing the highest quality and scoring coffees in Brasil.  They have spent years perfecting their picking, processing and drying process, in order to get the best quality cup of coffee.  They have some of the most sophisticated processing methods in Brazil, and their coffees hold many awards and accolades. Their experiments revealed that drying coffee at lower temperatures and higher air volume ensures better quality results for their customers

    The Farm

    Located in the heart of the Mantiqueira mountain range, Fazenda Rio Verde has been in existence for over 100 years. The farm is surrounded by virgin forest which has many waterfalls and beautiful hiking trails. It is a true natural sanctuary, where coffee occupies just over 40 percent of the total area.

    The Soil

    The soil is predominantly clay on a red mineral volcanic base, rich in decomposable material. On the mountain slopes, the diversity of vegetation has given these soils an unequalled richness in terms of nutrients and organic material.

    The Temperature

    The Mantiqueira mountain range has its own microclimate with mild temperatures, which range from 18 to 23 degrees Celsius, and an annual rainfall higher than 1,600 millimetres. During winter, the temperature occasionally falls below freezing in low-lying areas. Fazenda Rio Verde has the most rugged terrain amongst the three farms that Ipanema Coffee own. Ranging from 800 to 1,350 metres in altitude, almost all the farm's harvest operations must be conducted by hand due to the topography of the land.

    Irrigation and Sunlight

    Another characteristic of this uneven topography is the different amounts of sunlight that each area of the farm receives - this also creates a large number of 'terroirs' which create cup characteristics that are completely different from one another, depending on which area of the farm the particular lot was harvested from.  The rugged terrain of Fazenda Rio Verde prevents the use of irrigation, however the rainfall regime is highest amongst all of Ipanema's farms. The cultivars produced at Fazenda Rio Verde range from Acaia, Mundo Novo, Red Rubi as well as the exceptional Yellow Bourbon, Yellow Catuai and Yellow Icatu.

All time favourite

This has been my go too for a couple of years now, since my son introduced me to it. Full of flavour, with a hint of chocolate, not too strong, the perfect pick-me-up!

Broadening my horizons

I decided to deviate from my regular beans and try the Blend Two. Happy I did, this may become my new favourite, not too strong but full bodied. I love it.

Blend 10 is the blend for us

With COVID19, lockdown in Melbourne has been a long dark tea time of the soul. But then we discovered Jasper on line and our bags of beans have come through to shine some warm joy in the dark winter. We love the chocolate and smooth feel of the Blend 10 beans and highly recommend this blend to those who need some perking up.
