We have some scheduled site maintenance to take care of, so our shopping cart will be down for about an hour starting at 6am PST on Wed. 10/17. You can still window shop...you just won't be able to buy anything until around 7am. Sorry for the trouble and thanks for your patience.
This lot from Canato delivers pleasant profile of brown sugar, almond, black tea, and a pectin-like, raisin sweetness. Quite versatile in the roaster, most balance is close to Full City. It has decent acidity too, setting it apart from the average Brazil coffee. City+ to Full City+. Single Origin Espresso.
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 last year. 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 smell like honey and nut, quite sweet and candied. Hot water brings about a nice culmination of caramel and cocoa powder, and the break produces a healthy dose of toffee nut. The brewed coffee has such a pleasant profile, brown sugar, almond, black tea, and a pectin-like, raisin sweetness. Full City roasts strike such a nice balance of this sugary sweetness and bittersweet cocoa flavors. Body is heightened too, carrying these aspects along to the long aftertaste. Roberto Canato's coffee has a slight acidic snap to it too, setting it apart from the average Brazil. Great SO espresso too - chocolatey, dark sugars, and viscous body.
