THERA - Origin profile on specialty coffees

After a successful quality project in 2013 - conceived and handle by Volcano Origin Coffees - there 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 Thera is a high quality coffee that presents excellent full body with a great balance between sweetness and acidity and finishing with an intense aftertaste. Perfect coffee for special blends but also can be used as single origin.


The name of this unique and exquisite coffee is an homage to the most admired volcano in the ancient Greco-Roman civilization. Thera was a very powerful volcano on which the ancient culture related several mystical stories including the legendary lost civilization of Atlantis. Thera is the original name of the actual Signorini, today a volcanic caldera in the Aegean sea.
