This Dry Process Brazilian coffee is exceptional. It has everything that is unique to the country. The nutty sweetness and delicious chocolatey smooth cup. This dry process is super clean and slightly juicy. When I was a kid, my mom always put a Terry's chocolate orange in the bottom of my stocking (I mean, Santa kids...it was Santa). This coffee reminds me of that.
Espresso Roast Note
It has been several years since we've launched a coffee with a specific roast. We took that away because we felt like we were selling some coffees short by saying they were espresso roasts. Many of those coffees could stand in all brewing methods, but they were roasted specifically with Espresso in mind. Therefore, we started adding filters to show recommended brewing methods.
However, this month we came across this Brazilian coffee and thought we might have been wrong to keep a coffee at a certain roast level. It has been a long time since I tasted a cup of coffee and said, "that would make a perfect espresso/latte /cappuccino." This coffee begs to be brewed in a portafilter, and who am I to deprive it of its destiny?
About The Farm / Origin
The, Volcanic Microregion of Pocos de Caldas is an authentic Brazilian coffee terroir, where farms are scattered along slopes of one of the most geologically rich volcanic calderas in the world. With average heights from 990m to 1,250m, a rich combination of volcanic minerals and rainforest soil and a rare climate condition, this unique micro region has ideal conditions for growing excellent and exquisite profiles of specialty coffees.
Fazenda Sertão owners, José Isidro Pereira and his wife Nazareth Dias Pereira were married in 1949. José actually graduated from dentistry and practiced as a dentist for three years. He then returned to the Sertão farm, when he inherited it from his mother.
Now, the couple’s children, Francisco, Luiz Paulo, Glycia and Sandra, each help run the business and contribute greatly to its development. As Fazenda Sertão continues to grow, José’s and Nazareth’s grandchildren are also now involved in the entire coffee chain.
