This coffee from Fazenda da Prata really defies the traditional flavour profiles of Brazil. "Why?" you may ask? Because of its bright, tangy red currant acidity. That's why!
Fazenda da Prata is nestled in the mountains of the Espírito Santo region on the coast of Brazil. The region is traditionally famous for its colonial-era city and tropical beaches, but it is becoming known for its great coffee. The farm is managed by Raquel Nalli and her husband Silvio Dalcin Junior, and thanks to Raquel's parents, Nalli is a highly respected name in Brazilian specialty coffee.
This lot is the Catucaí variety, a naturally occurring cross between Catuai and Icatu. It cups exceptionally well and is highly resistant to disease. This coffee has notes of sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, some delicate florals, and tangy red currant.
