Legender Especial is a blend of coffees grown in the unique micro-regions of Machado, Poco Fundo and Campestre, located in Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Most coffee regions in Brazil are well known for large coffee plantations in big farms. Legender Especial goes in the opposite direction, consisting of small farms called Sitios. All lots are purchased directly from growers committed to quality and willing to provide detailed information about their Sitios, harvesting methods, drying techniques and all relevant information about their coffee. Legender Especial is unique and original because it represents a small group of farmers from a micro-region known for its quality. The great potential of this region lies in the high quality and hard working families running these small farms.
