Cupping Notes: Notes of cocoa, walnut, dark chocolate and cherry. Roasted Medium
We felt we needed a smooth, medium roast espresso blend and our Brazilian Express fits the bill! The main ingredient in this blend is a Brazilian coffee from the Cerrado region. Its rich nutty aroma and amazing aftertaste make this fresh roasted coffee a fan favorite. Other coffees in the blend are from Costa Rica and Nicaragua.

Cerrado is a region in the state of Minas Gerais, which is now the largest coffee-producing state in Brazil. Coffee has been a major crop in this region since the 1980’s mainly because of the devastating black frost of 1975 that forced growers from the Parana region to relocate north to Cerrado and other areas of Minas Gerais. Today, coffee is produced by over 4,500 growers on 175,000 hectares of farmland with yields of approximately 5.5 to 6.0 million bags per year. The coffee is grown in rich soil that the natives call “Terra Roxa” or “Red Earth” and other factors such as consistent rains, high daytime temperatures, and dry winters combine to make the Cerrado region an ideal area in Brazil for producing coffee
A super smooth blend that works great for any brew method including espresso.
