Celebrating the work of Virgulino Muniz, one of Origins trusted long-term partners in Brazil. His coffee is incredible. It has a consistent, distinct dark sugar sweetness and complex chocolate notes; a perfect showcase of Brazilian coffee.
Das Almas has been in Virgulino’s family since 1942 and visiting his farm is always a welcome experience for them. Located at 1,200 masl with mineral rich soil covering 109 hectares of rolling hills. Virgulino and his team are dedicated to environmental sustainability, with various projects currently underway. Including ecosystem preservation and raising awareness of this in the local community, along with support to a local children's care institution.
The coffee cherries are hand-picked and sun dried on raised beds or patios with their fruit fully intact. This enables the flavours of the pulp and sweetness of the mucilage to impart into the bean.
Origin create a new and unique profile for each coffee they roast. Although the profiles are different, their approach is always the same - to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means they don’t label their coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. All of their coffees are omni-roast so are meant to be delicious however you brew. Origin believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.
