Valleys, dunes, plains and plateaus converge in Bahia, creating a geographical mosaic as rich as the interwoven cultures of its inhabitants. This vibrant pocket of South America is where Brazilian, European and African artistry and traditions collide. The vitality and energy of the region are reflected in its reputation for extraordinary coffees. Though Bahia has only been exporting beans since the 1970s, the quality of those crops has garnered international acclaim. This cup from Vale Verde Estate is the perfect example—and our first foray into Bahia’s flavors. With crisp notes of green apple and dried plum, it’s a breakthrough coffee from a land of endless possibilities.
