It all started in 1981, when Diogo Tudela's father decided to plant coffee trees and start producing real good Brazilian coffee. Things have come a long way since then. His son, Diogo, is now the head of the farm and has made it even better than it was, with the certifications from Rainforest Alliance and UTZ. The farm, itself, dedicates 253 hectares so that the biodiversity of the region can live and grow without the worry of deforestation.
The Topazio is a cross between Mundo Novo and Yellow Catuaí, first developed by IAC in 1960 and then intensified by the EPAMIG research organization in Minas Gerais, Brazil. These coffee trees have a small stature, they are relatively compact reminiscent of one of its genetic congeners, the Catuaí. The cherries of the Topazio ripen to a deep yellow resembling the precious stone called topaz, hence the origin of its name.
A cup of this coffee will bring you much pleasure, it is with a fruity and sweet taste of strawberries that the Topazio will welcome you. Then, you will distinguish a suite of wild berries with also notes of dried fruits. The whole thing ends fabulously well with a note of chocolate, caramel and also molasses, which makes this coffee ultra light, without acidity and very tasty!
