About This Coffee
Sítio da Torre is a coffee estate in the Mantiqueira de Minas region, known for producing some of the best specialty coffees in Brazil. The estate's success is attributed to the perfect convergence of soil, climate, altitude, and the traditional coffee cultivation techniques that date back to the 19th century.
The estate was founded by Antonio Coli, an Italian immigrant who came to Brazil for a better life. Since then, the land has been passed down through generations of the Coli family, now fourth-generation owners.
Their commitment to excellence is evident in their remarkable achievements, having won the Cup of Excellence 29 times. Every step of the coffee-making process is carried out meticulously by hand, from harvesting to washing and peeling the beans to drying them naturally on the patio.
In 2019, the estate was expanded with the purchase of a 30-hectare parcel of land that was sold in 1985 due to the owner Paulo Coli's financial difficulties. The estate now spans an impressive 95 hectares.

NORMCORE STYLE SUPER LIGHT ROASTING
We roast our single-origin coffees as lightly as possible. It's often lighter than the standard light-roast profile (Our development time ratio is 8-10%, while a typical light roast's ratio is around 13-16%).
Regardless of its origin, varietal or process, our approach is to maximise the flavour profile of the coffee by minimising flavours caused by roasting. Our single-origin coffees have a delightful silky texture and well-balanced taste, despite being lightly roasted.
DAMN GOOD COFFEE ONLY.
