Brazil Amerello Serrado
Fazenda Isidro Pereira, Carmo de Minas
Texture: clean, sweet and juicy.
Flavor profile: noticeably juicy and aromatic coffee cherry acidity straight from the grind. Adding water lets the cedar and cinnamon come out. The acid is purely sweet, round and exceptionally clean. It's flavor is from the coffee cherry itself, without the tartness- an excellent example of what Pulped Natural processing can do to a coffee when done well. The depth and body are in the cedar and cinnamon tones that pair nicely with the cherry acid. The coffee remains consistent and complex throughout, finishing long and refreshing.
Noteworthy: Fazenda Isidro Pereira was formerly known as Fazenda Amerello in Carmo de Minas in the Brazilian highlands. It was renamed by Luis Paulo Pereira after his grandfather, Isidro, passed away leaving the farm to him. This coffee is two small lots from adjoining parcels. 100% Yellow Bourbon Cultivar, Pulped Natural process, grown at 1250 meters.
