It is not often that coffees from Brazil score so highly. This small lot of coffee is one of the top lots that came out of the Mantiqueira de Minas auctions and is such a pleasurable cup to drink. While not as acidic and bright as an African coffee this coffee is loaded with subtle fruit notes and sweetness that makes us want to sit down, take a moment from our day, and focus on the quiet complexities of the cup it produces. You could potentially overlook just how good this coffee actually as it's such an easy and comforting cup to drink. However, with a little further inspection you can start to taste and appreciate all that this coffee has to offer.
