Small Batch Limited Edition - Brazil Matão Honey

We’re proud to feature a remarkable group of women for our next Small Batch Limited Edition Series release, Brazil Matão Honey.

The Matão Mulheres do Café group is composed of 24 women members in the southern state of Parana, Brazil. The group formed in 2013 with just 12 members. When they opened a centralized wet mill, the group grew. Their coffee has received great results in coffee cupping competitions. The recognition and rewards from these competitions have been life-altering for these women, bringing Matão coffee to the attention of quality-focused international buyers like Allegro Coffee.

The coffee is 100% hand-picked collectively by the women. As a group, they go from farm to farm throughout the harvest season to cover the 68 hectares they own. Then, they take the coffee to the mill to pulp it, remove the cherry husk and dry it in the sun with the fruit still covering the parchment beans. This is called a honey process and it creates the luscious characteristics of this coffee.
