It has been a while since we bought nice Brazilian coffee. This is the second and last one of the year. We wanted a stable coffee in our line-up that would go really well with the milk and as a straight shot as well. While we are waiting for the fresh harvest Guatemalans to arrive, we bought this one. It is juicy, with notes of apple and some fresh stone fruit notes.
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 some criteria.
We wanted a solid and stable base coffee in our line-up, available in larger quantities and the Mantiqueira de Minas blends have proven to be the solution! These coffees have a more refined cup profile than our other classic Brazilian coffees. The variety blend has a soft acidity and fresh stone fruit notes.
