Prestogeorge Coffee Co.'s Brazil Summer Solstice City Light Roast coffee boasts intense tropical fruit notes with a honey like sweetness, round medium body and nice acidity. This limited-edition special buy comes directly from Deterra Farms in the Cerrado region of Brazil. It's naturally processed and sun-dried.
Our City Light Roast coffees are roasted in less time than our other roasts. We roast the beans shortly after the first crack in our roasters, resulting in a shorter roast time and retaining many of the original characteristics of the bean’s flavor. The Summer Solstice bean pairs well with this type of roast.
Summer Solstice is part of the Daterra Farms Collections which are the top-quality coffees from their current menu. They are the best coffees from their plantations and are completely processed using the Daterra Penta Process®. Those are coffees that score 86-89, fully traceable and usually used as single origins.
Notes from Deterra Farms:
Lands with personality and attitude
The Cerrado Region:
Steady climate, dry-fresh winters, warm-wet summers. Dry winds in pleasantly hot days and refreshingly cool nights. Sounds like the dream place for one’s vacation. In fact, it is the perfect condition for amazing beans to be grown. This is what you find in the region where Daterra farms are located.
Our farms in the city of PatrocÃnio are the oldest coffee plantations in Brazilian Cerrado region, and it is amongst the best coffee producing areas in the country. All plantations are located at an average altitude of over 3.000 ft and some terroirs are around 4.000 ft.
Wind, sun, and soil are exceptional for Arabica trees. The diverse altitudes and microclimates create conditions that will later surprise the palate with a large range of flavors from velvet-chocolaty to bright-flowery profiles.
Coffee connoisseurs and world barista champions often visit the farms, and we work together to learn innovative processes for coffee cherries and creating new micro-lots of exceptional coffees.
Coffee That Is Truly Green
Sustainable agriculture was still quite unknown for Brazil at the time we started our coffee endeavors. How can one take something from earth without harming it? Simple: we borrow it, and then we give back.
It is not only about producing the best coffee of the world. It is about producing coffee for a better world.
