SKU: MOD-SING Category:


This coffee is sourced from two family estates in the Sul de Minas growing region near the city of Varginha within the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil.  Fazenda da Onça was established by the Ferraz family in the early 1900s after Minas Gerais replaced its gold mining industry with coffee cultivation. Fazenda Campo da Chapada was established late in the 1950s after the the Botrel family’s cattle business was left with an unpaid debt from a bankrupt company that had purchased their cattle. Like the gold mines of Minas Gerais, the land was transformed into a coffee estate, which the Botrel family continues to manage today. Both families manage their estates on a foundation of tradition but they also work closely with the MinaSul cooperative where their coffees are evaluated and prepared for export using state-of-the-art milling equipment.

    Good flavor and robust. Good mouth feel- thickness and richness. Not too acidic. Will definitely continue to drink and purchase.

    Still dialing this in Peru – San Ignacio (Medium – Full City)
    The nose is beautiful and as described
    Lot of cocoa and dark chocolate notes on this one

    I have been drinking Modest for over 2 years now and it has been consistently the best coffee I have ever had. You may change the flavors seasonally but it always is a smooth coffee with a fantastic flavor that never upsets my stomach and it fits any time of day. Morning cup, afternoon, or dinner. You have ruined me for any and all other coffee.
