This is a fantastic single estate bean from the Santa Lucia Farm in Brazil. The aroma on grinding gives a preview of what to expect in the cup — sweet nuts like mazipan and fresh cream. The flavors are a combination of creamy caramel, smokey sweet almonds, a touch of lemony citrus, and cream. The mouth feel is balanced and smooth, and if you close your eyes, one might think that the black cup has cream in it! Light smokey sweet almonds continue on the finish. Notes from the importer: “Soft, caramelly and clean, delicate citrus acidity with a nutty vanilla after-taste.”
Information about the farm and the coffee
Grown on hills, between 1,000 a 1,200 meters above sea level, cultivation is manually done with low levels of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Organic fertilizers guarantee a high-quality coffee.
The harvesting of Santa Lucia coffee is selective and hand-made. Only ripe coffee cherries are picked and sent to the washing process.
