Brazil St. Domingos Volcano Coffee from Poços de Caldas

St. Domingos is blended from Volcano Coffee Company's sweetest coffee cherries, creating an eminently drinkable, naturally sweet coffee with ample notes of brown sugar, soft fruit, vanilla and chocolate. The aroma is reminiscent of a cafe offering both coffee and fresh-baked pastry. Smooth and low-acid, and perfect for enjoying without sugar, hot or cold.

We are now roasting the last of our St. Domingos, sadly. we may have more in the next season in the fall. so we are only offering it in the Medium roast at this time.

8 oz bags, please choose drip or whole bean.

More Information

There is no other terroir in the world similar to the unique microclimate of Poços de Caldas, which is angled perfectly toward the sun. Pocos de Caldas receives sharply divided day and night periods that begin with early morning sun full-on until 4 pm, when the sun suddenly is cut off by passing across the rim of the crate at the top of the mountain, triggering a burst of energy (sugar) conversion into flavor in the beans. The soil is an enriched combination of volcanic minerals and rainforest soil, giving the coffee an abundance of nutrition and minerals. The coffees consist of a variety of unusual Arabica sub-types, including golden-fruited Catuai.

These coffees are sustainably grown, UTZ Certified, and direct-trade. Volcano Coffee Company also practices an innovative reinterpretation of "shade-grown" coffee: instead of interplanting hardwood trees with their coffee (which is of limited usefulness for wildlife due to lack of underbrush and biodiversity), they preserve wide strips of intact rainforest between different planting areas. This lets the coffee get the right amount of sun, protects biodiversity, and provides undisturbed habitat for wildlife.

  1. 5 Star Review Delicious Coffee!

    Len's Coffee was out of my favorite Trung Nguyen Buon Me Thuot coffee, so I decided to try something different. I chose some Brazilian St. Domingo coffee. I was surprised at how delicious it was! I am really enjoying it! I will seriously consider buying more of it in the future.

  4. 5 Star Review Smooth and delicious

    I've learned that I can't go wrong with anything I've ordered here! But, this St. Domingos is my (latest) favorite. While brewing, the smell is enticing. While sipping, the taste is so smooth. It's a coffee for any occasion and I've served it for company to rave reviews, both hot and cold-brewed.

The Araku Valley of India

India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
