The Jacu Bird is an endangered species and freely runs wild on the Camocim coffee estate. The owner of the Camocim estate Henrique Sloper inadvertently attracted Jacu birds to his coffee plantation with the introduction of fully organic / biodynamic sustainable farming methods. Since 2009, Henrique helps and continues to support the JBW Jacu Bird Wildlife board and of the Biodiversity Institute (IBIO) in the preservation of this endangered bird.

This coffee is a rare and sought after delicacy famous for being processed through the intestinal tract of the Jacu Bird. The bird eats the whole coffee berries, digests the sweet, pulpy outer layer and excretes the coffee beans themselves, which emerge with a mellower, less acidic flavour. The beans are then thoroughly cleaned before being packaged for sale.

The jacu bird, which looks like an english pheasant, is a protected bird in Brazil. Wild birds of the forest have suffered from the country’s deforestation. However, due to Henriques pioneering organic farming methods, he was seeing vast numbers of them wandering onto his estate, feasting on the abundance of pesticide-free coffee cherries.

Unlike the Kopi Luwak palm civet, who loves coffee so much it’s happy to eat any quality of berry. The birds know their coffee well. They choose only the ripest fruit to eat. As the Jacu bird is so discerning in its appetites, when it excretes the coffee beans it leaves a pile of pre-sorted, top quality beans that are then just collected and cleaned ready for processing.
