Much of the coffee grown in Brazil comes from large coffee plantations (estates) -- this coffee, however, is different. Legender is a pooled lot of coffees from small family farms, called Sitios, from the unique micro-regions of Machado, Poco Fundo, and Campestre all located in Minas Gerais State. This is a region know for it's quality. These lots are purchased directly from quality focused growers who are able to provide all the pertinent information about their growing, harvesting, and drying methods. The hard work of these farmers shines through in the cup.
