We didn’t buy brazilian coffee in a very long time since we couldn’t find anything interesting over the last years. The best coffees usually sell out quickly to big names. We wanted a stable coffee that goes great with milk while we wait for the Boat For and the Burundi coffees to arrive. This Brazil has notes of stone fruit, apple and has a mild acidity.
This regional Mantiqueira Mountains Yellow Bourbon blend consists of the production of several smallholder farmers who are associated to the COCARIVE cooperative in Carmo de Minas. Coffees are selected on quality, variety and process by our partners at COCARIVE. In order to be selected for their regional blends, the farm has to meet a set of quality criteria. The cup score target for this selection lies between 83 and 84. Balance and sweetness are the key features of this coffee.
For those who need a solid and stable base coffee in their line-up, available in larger quantities, the Mantiqueira de Minas blends have proven to be the solution! This regional selection has a more refined cup profile than our other classic Brazilian blend coffees. The blend has a soft acidity and fresh stone fruit notes.
