Brazil Fazenda Monte Verde

In the cup, this Brazil has a clear sweetness and tea-like mouthfeel at City/City+, while Full City roasts showcase juicy fruits and a syrupy body. It's a pleasant cup along the roast spectrum with notes of raw almond, and stone fruits like peach and nectarine, especially at Full City. The acidity is lively like mandarin oranges, and the sweetness is akin to date sugar. All in all, this lot from Fazenda Kaquend brews so well and will make a great single origin espresso. City to Full City.

This is a special micro-lot from Fazenda Monte Verde. This farm has won awards for both pulped natural and dry-processed coffees, including first place for a dry-process lot that we offered a couple months back. The farm is the property of Jose Roberto Canato and his family. At a total of 600 hectares, 140 are entirely dedicated to coffee, and much of the farm is maintained in a natural state, with freshwater springs supplying water for the crops and the natural environment as well. Fazenda Monte Verde is situated at 1260 meters, and they have a variety of coffee cultivars.
The dry grounds have a pleasing scent of candied walnut and honey, and with a spiced element of cinnamon stick and clove. Dark roasts show a more fruited side with dried stone fruit and berries. Hot water brings on such a sweet aroma with measurable notes of toasted sugar, milk chocolate and hazelnut. Full City roasts are also very sweet and have a confluence of dark brown sugar and butter, along with black walnut when breaking through the crust.
