Ninho da Águia is located on the slopes of one of Brazils national wonders, Pico da Bandeira. Our coffee grows on higher-than-average altitude in this country, which gives the cup a very interesting flavour profile: Notes of butterscotch, red currants, ripe fruits and chocolate ganache are supported by an elegant acidity. Floral finish.

Only fully ripe cherries are picked by hand, sorted, and gently dried on raised beds. The drying period is between 20 – 30 day to create an even consistency throughout the beans and to fully develop its flavours.
