About the Farmer

The Mococa terroir was the birthing place of the ambitious Bob-o-Link project, and it was here at the heart of their farm that Marcos Croce and Silvia Barretto began their mission.

On returning to Brasil from the United States to take over the originally intensive monoculture family farm, the couple made a courageous choice to rebuild the farm from scratch. After symbolically renaming their farm "Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza", and with the aim of creating much more than specialty coffee, Sylvia and Marcos put all their energy into learning about coffee farming and into bringing their neighbors together to reach a "global quality" for all. They wanted to produce an economically, ecologically, and socially sustainable coffee; a very difficult challenge in a great coffee-producing country like Brasil, but one they are currently excelling in.

What was originally a farm project has now become a way of life for the 50 neighboring coffee farmers involved in the production of Bob-o-Link coffee.

The Bob-o-link is a migratory bird that is finding it increasingly difficult to make its journey from Patagonia to the northern hemisphere due to the monocultures that spread all over America. The project was named after the bird as a commitment to creating ecosystems that work with and support nature. The project is a reflection of this promise.

Bob-o-Link coffee is companion-planted and shaded on semi-mountainous terroir, at altitudes of 900 to 1,300 meters. The producers involved in this project selectively harvest cherries by hand, at their peak ripeness. This manual harvesting technique is in stark contrast with the typical image of mechanical harvesting usually associated with Brasil's plantations.

Bob-o-Link is produced using only yellow varieties of cherries. The cup profile is somewhat between a Brazilian natural with chocolatey notes and a Central American natural with fruitier notes.
