The coffee of Fogo

The month of February is synonymous Fogo coffee: start the collection of one of the best coffee in the world, acknowledged.
The area north of the island, behind Mosteiros is largely cultivated coffee and since February we find many people (mostly women) involved in the collection of these precious berries, the bags are then taken downstream in head or mule, will be left to dry in the sun and then again manually removed the skin will produce the grain ready for roasting here that you also hand in the oven or in a pan of bakeries in the house.
The modest production does not allow the export of the product, but the tourist who tastes it never fails to bring a little ‘with him as a souvenir of the island.
