     Origin:

      Volcanic Micro Region of Poços de Caldas - Brazil

The Volcanic Microregion of Poços de Caldas is an authentic Brazilian coffee terroir, where farms are scattered along slopes of one of the most geologically rich volcanic caldera in the world. 

 

With average heights from 1,000m to 1,250mrich combination of volcanic minerals and rainforest soil and a rare climate condition, ​​​​this unique microregion has ideal conditions for growing excellent and exquisite profiles of specialty coffees.

 

The subtropical altitude climate offers to this terroir an excellent rainfall rate and the largest thermal amplitude for a whole day among all the Brazilian coffee growing regions, creating outstanding conditions for the maturation of the beans and triggering a burst of flavors for the coffees.

 

These are natural vocations which join a culture based on quality and sustainability principals.

ST. DOMINGOS - special origin profile

After a successful quality project in 2013 - conceived and managed by Volcano Origin Coffeesthere were identified some distinct qualities of specialty green coffees grown specifically in the Volcanic Micro Region of Poços de Caldas, with very typical quality profiles.

 

The origin profile St. Domingos is a high quality coffee that presents an outstanding sweetness. It has a smooth body and a pleasant aftertaste. Clean, consistent, uniform and very well balenced.  Perfect for single origin but also used for special blends. 

 

The name of this unique and exquisite coffee is an homage to the - Poços de Caldas volcano, one of the most geologically rich volcanic calderas in the world. In the catholic culture, very embbeded in Braziluan culture, St. Domingos is a very important Saint, famous for expanding frontiers for his cause. Analogue to what Volcano does with its 'terroir coffees'.
