Chocolatey, nutty, and smooth. This coffee sees a little more development in the roaster to minimize the acidity, it hones in on the body to act like a warm hug. 25% of Turning Point comes from ASOTBILBAO and is a classic washed Colombian and 75% Santa Lucia natural Yellow Catuai from Brazil. 

Our current offering for Turning Point is a blend of two coffees. We've profiled these two coffees separately and blended them post-roast. Our intention is to match density and bean sizing so they extract at even rates, bringing you the most flavour clarity in your cup of coffee.

Helcio has been working with coffee since he was 15 years old. In 1976, Helcio married Glycia Pereira Carneiro, and began to manage the farm Santa Lucia. at that time, there was no concern about the quality of coffee, the focus was simply on volume. They had no access to knowledge, technology or even information about markets for Specialty coffees.

In the 90’s, Helcio was part of the movement that started searching for quality in the region of Carmo de Minas, being one of the founders of Aprocam – Association of Coffee Producers from the Mantiqueira Region.

This group of pioneers sought the help of experts and scientists to know the actual quality of coffees and how to produce quality in large-scale. These experts shared with the group about the Pulped Natural Processing Method and how it would be helpful on their wish. Helcio was one of the first growers to get the facilities needed for this method, being a pioneer in the region.

Year after year, with the support of universities and scientists, as well as trips to other coffee producing countries, Helcio has continued getting better in the production of specialty coffees. We've cupped coffees from Santa Lucia since 2017. Nowadays his name, and his farm also, are already known in key markets.

"Our main challenge is in manpower, there will be a change in the characteristic of our coffee region due to this factor. And we need to be prepared for this moment"

This washed field blend is an approachable coffee with stone fruit and citrus qualities framing the cup. You will find that these soft fruit flavours are supported by almond and dark chocolate notes. The body is smooth and overall it is a clean flavour profile.

This lot is a blend of three different coffee varieties that are cultivated at La Esperanza; Caturra, Colombia and Mandela. These are harvested together and co-fermented after being pulped, in open-air tanks for approximately 35 hours.
