Dirty? Boring? These two words have always been associated with Brazilian coffees.
Alas! This coffee is definately an exception to the ‘boring Brazil’. Times are changing for Brazilian coffees as farmers are planting interesting varietals and processing coffees with a level of care that is delivering coffees with character and interest.
There will be a number of different lots from this farm around Melbourne this year, including a Cup of Excellence winning coffee which we purchased (part of) in the Brazil CoE auction two days ago.
Don’t be fooled by the regularity of this coffee on different roasters shelves for it will taste fairly different from roaster to roaster and lot to lot.
