Brazilian Fazenda Auerea
Dark and Delicious
Heirloom varietals from Brazil have become increasingly rare. This is because larger commercial operations have been expanding in the country, making the Brazilian Fazenda Aurea incredibly special.
This is no run of the mill Brazilian varietal. Bold to the point of brazen, this coffee features a full body with toasty overtones and nutty notes. Then, ride out the mile-long finish with the sweetness of caramel.
What's so unusual is that it's a delicate, small-farm seed grown in a region known for large, industrial operations. Brazilian coffee like this can't be found anywhere else!
Organic, Fair Trade
Bolivia has all the necessary ingredients for a perfect cup of coffee: high peaks, impeccable seed-stock, and sustainable farming practices. What I'm roasting today is an excellent example of how agricultural products can change from season to season. Last years' crop delivered a surprisingly musky coffee to the shop, but the Bolivia d'Montaņa has evolved into something much more exquisite, sweet, and smooth.
This is one of the creamiest coffees I've ever tasted, almost as though there's cream in the cup straight out of the espresso machine. Beneath the crema are hints of cedar shavings and cinnamon, with a beautiful and distinct flavor of creme brulee and raw honey.
Cupping this reminds me of old-fashioned coffee-flavored hard candy with that delightful, lingering sweetness. Coffee this luscious is an unusual treat, and I am loving it!
