Ep. 791 Brazil Cachoeira da Grama Pulped Natural Bourbon

Milk chocolate, roasted hazelnut, walnut

Fazenda Cachoeira da Grama is 417 hectares, and 64 are planted with coffee. Environmental sustainability is considered very important in the farm management, and they have developed a program of planting native species alongside the coffee crop to keep a better ecological balance.

This farm has a school, a club, a full-sized football field for employees, and 47 houses with modern facilities. The family invests heavily in the farm's coffee processing facilities. Wastewater is treated to avoid polluting the stream that crosses the land, and the farm has a small hydroelectric plant used during the peak harvest.

A chunk of creamy milk chocolate, a dash of roasted hazelnut and a sprinkling of walnuts on the finish and aftertaste makes the recipe for this classic a mug full of comfort.
