Legender, as a coffee buying group, was founded in 2012 focused on offering the best coffees grown in their region. They provide full traceability of all of coffee lots and their partner producers are fully committed to environment friendly practices. The group is focused on building strong and lasting relationships with their grower partners.
Roasting Notes: Brazilian coffees are somewhat softer and less dense due to their elevation, so heat is absorbed more quickly. We prefer to stop this coffee before the outset of second crack, in order to preserve citrus notes and brightness. To roast it too dark would mean that many of its subtleties would be lost, but be sure to have a first crack plus at least a full minute of development time and possibly first sounds of second crack.
