This is a special micro-lot from Fazenda Monte Verde. This farm has won awards for both pulped natural and dry-processed coffees, including first place for a dry-process lot that we offered a couple months back. The farm is the property of Jose Roberto Canato and his family. At a total of 600 hectares, 140 are entirely dedicated to coffee, and much of the farm is maintained in a natural state, with freshwater springs supplying water for the crops and the natural environment as well. Fazenda Monte Verde is situated at 1260 meters, and they have a variety of coffee cultivars.
The dry grounds have a pleasing scent of candied walnut and honey, and with a spiced element of cinnamon stick and clove. Hot water brings on a very sweet aroma with measurable notes of toasted sugar, rich caramel, and hazelnut. In the cup, this Brazil has a clear sweetness and tea-like mouthfeel at City/City+, while Full City roasts showcase a much bigger body, burned sugar and almond. It's a pleasant cup along the roast spectrum, crowd-pleasing, especially at Full City. The acidity is fairly mild...
