Roast Level: Dark
Tasting Notes: Molasses, Hazelnut, and Caramel
The Nobletree Defiance Dark Roast is crafted from a mix of single-sourced, 100% Arabica beans from our privately-owned Fazenda Santa Izabel Farm in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. The Defiance dark roast has notes of molasses, hazelnut, and caramel aromas that complement deep chocolate desserts, cheesecake, and strong cheeses.
Our Rainforest Certified Farms use sustainable agriculture to cultivate, harvest, and process coffee cherries, ensuring complete transparency and a traceable supply chain. Roasted in our state-of-the-art facility in Red Hook, Brooklyn, New York, we use antique, refurbished Probat roasters to produce a high-quality specialty coffee that is low in acidity and naturally caffeinated.
The Farm Santa Izabel has always been recognized for the high quality of its coffees. Nobletree Coffee Farms acquired Santa Izabel, located in the south of Minas Gerai, in 2013 and began transforming it into a sustainable, world-class coffee bean producer. By 2017, our new crops started to harvest. Since 2020, the older sections are experiencing rejuvenation for stability and sustained growth.
