How It Tastes
A thoroughly sweet cup with mild fruit and caramel notes, unctuous hazelnut, and smooth, full body.
For the record, all of our favorite farms also produce coffees by the “pulped natural” method, which involves removing the skin and some of the fruit pulp from the outset, and the “washed” method, which fully removes it, as is the standard in countries like Costa Rica. In Brazil, with lower altitudes and less acidity, we find the typical washed coffee to be somewhat bland.
Brazil Minas Naturais is anything but, making maximal effect of slow sun drying for a smooth, full bodied, sun-dried sweet cup with mild fruit and natural notes of hazelnut. We think these flavors are exhibited best in a medium roast style, and they shine in our single cups.
