Our Royal Roast Coffee is 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified and Fair Trade USA Certified. This is our way to contribute to a better future for people and nature and support sustainability.
The Nobletree Royal Roast is an exquisite roast originating from Brazil’s Santa Izabel and Monte Verde Farms. Royal Roast is special because of the distinct taste and high quality of the beans representing some of the best of this year’s harvest. A micro lot is a specific selection of beans originating from a single, traceable plot of land. The single plot of land allows for more traceability and distinct flavors based on the climate, growing conditions, and elevation. There are three varieties and different roast profiles: the Royal Roast, the Empress Light Medium Roast, the Majestic Medium Roast, and the Imperial Espresso Roast. These varieties hail from coffee cherries grown on terraced soil at 3,500 feet above sea level in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Royal Roast, in particular, highlights more sweet notes such as chocolate and hazelnut – these tasting notes can easily be lost in blends and other coffees but are what help this exceptional micro-lot shine.

Our Micro-lot coffee is sustainably produced, quality coffee that is cultivated from the same climate, soil and altitude. It is processed with care and provides with a unique tasting experience. Royal Roast is harvested from our Santa Izabel Farm and processed in a separate way from the rest of the coffees, to amplify their special qualities and taste.
Our micro-lot coffee is traceable. Traceability is not only becoming more desired but also easier to execute. While most coffee is blended and exported in regional lots, Nobletree can trace lots of coffees from a single acre on our farms. The most traceable lots are often referred to as ‘micro-lots,’ a term that may cause some confusion. Although this term is applied differently around the world, usually micro-lots are single farm coffees, selected for quality.
Micro-lots are selected for their high quality and unique flavor profiles. Our micro-lots are picked and processed entirely separately from the rest of the farm’s lots. Each of these plots vary due to a number of reasons — a different coffee varietal, shade tree and the amount of sunlight received. It also changes with different altitudes within the farm and the direction in which the plot faces. The right combination of these will lead to unique flavors in the coffee, different from the standard taste profile.
