Back in January 2019 we shared our first South American coffee, that coffee was to be significant to many relationships we have formed, but most relevant here is our that with Toasted Coffee Roasters.
It is a great pleasure we are back with Toasted to bring an offering from Pedregulho, Alta Mogiana, Brazil with the help of another newly formed relationship, that with coffee importer, Langdon Coffee Merchants.
