This is a coffee from the Fazenda of coffee matriarch Nazareth Dias Pereira in Carmo de Minas, a farm we have bought from for the past 2 seasons. This coffee has consistently scored well on my cupping table. , and the Top Sky mark coffees. In fact, it is from the same group, Aprocam, that we get those lots from, and who placed so well in the Brazil Cup of Excellence. Other than all that, I actually don't know what farm in their "group" this coffee comes from. But the cup is excellent! The dry fragrance has strong hazelnut and an interesting grain note like wheat crackers. Add water and the wet aromatics become very sweet and malty, with floral notes (wildflowers) initially, and hints of sage blossom. There is something pleasantly savory about the aromatics. In the light roast the cup has very mandarin-orange-like flavor, tea-bisquit and barley, with a very mild overall intensity of flavor. As it cools, Meyer lemon notes emerge, more as a flavor than an aspect of acidity (it's a mild and proportionate acidity overall). Darker roasts take on more bittersweet and chocolate character with some anise and herbal hints, but the lighter roasts are what distinguish the quality of this coffee.
