The Modest

Medium – Full City


SKU: MOD-SING Category:



As the world’s largest coffee producer, Brazilian lots often come from larger estates that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes. The Mogiana region, split between the states of SĂŁo Paulo and Minas Gerais, is the most renowned of three major Brazilian growing regions. This region has rolling hills and uneven terrain lending to farms that are small to medium in size. This particular lot comes from Cooperativa Regional de Cafeicultores em GuaxupĂ© (CooxupĂ©), which was established in 1937 and currently has 14,000 active members. Producers typically have farms that average 60 acres in size. Each producer cultivates and harvest their own cherries and places them on patios to dry to 15 percent moisture after which the coffee is moved to mechanical driers to precisely finish the drying to 11 percent moisture. Coffee is carefully stored until it is time for milling and export, which all takes place at the CooxupĂ© dry mill where traceability and quality control are carefully managed so each producer can be paid according to the quality of their coffee. Our current offering is Fine Cup (FC) and Strictly Soft (SS), the highest cup category in the Brazilian coffee grading.

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

    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.
