Brazil Carmo de Minas - Fazenda Kaquend

The cup is delicate and light roasts have an orange-like flavor, with butter cookie and praline providing a mild overall intensity. As it cools, more mild citrus notes emerge along with green tea and a light caramel flavor. Full City roasts have dark fruits (think plum and fig), bittersweet chocolate characteristics and with a defined, but gentle citrus acidity. This is a bodied coffee that makes a great single origin espresso, or would provide great mouthfeel and sweetness to an espresso blend. City+ to Full City+.

At the foot of the Serra da Mantiqueira, Fazenda Kaquend has a 200-year-old tradition of coffee production. The farm is owned by Jos© Wagner Ribeiro Junqueira and his wife Margarida, and their sons Kleber, Ralph and Herbert. Kaquend has won too many awards to list, including the #1 spot in the Cup of Excellence. This lot is a pulp-natural process (cereja decascada) from this 45 acre farm with an altitude of 1100 to 1450 meters. They have Yellow Bourbon, Acai, Yellow Catua_, and Catuca_ varietals planted.
The dry fragrance has a nice nuttiness to it, that is like honey-roasted nuts. It's sweet, replete with notes of dark sugar and spiced chocolate. A strong smell of vanilla bean and hazelnut comes up in the wet aromatics, and the coffee crust that forms on top smells of brown sugar and raisin. The cup is delicate and light roasts have an orange-like flavor, with butter cookie and praline providing a mild overall intensity. As it cools, more mild citrus notes emerge along with green tea and a light caramel flavor. Full City roasts have dark fruits (think plum and fig), bittersweet chocolate characteristics and with a defined, but gentle citrus acidity.
