Brazil Serra Negra
Patrocinio, Minas Gerais
Acid: low to medium
Texture: mainly clean and juicy, slight nut skin in middle.
Flavor Profile: the acid profile is juicier and shows more complexity than in some of our previous brazillian offerings. Prototypical sweet orange with just enoughrind to be noticed, coffee cherry and sweet green grape are also present. Hazelnut liquor and dark chocolate follow and sink into a just slightly grainy texture. It’s the liquid form of Nutella again. Finish is long and sweet.
Noteworthy: Pedro Rossi and his family have tended Fazenda Serra Negra since 1985. The farm’s average elevation is 1150 meters and contains 99 hectares of coffee all of which is processed on site. This coffee is of the Red Catuai varietal and processed in the Pulped Natural method.
