Brazil Cerrado Salmo Micro-Lot
Brazilian coffee is a sweet and complex coffee with notes of berries. I think its slightly tart like raspberries, but only as it cools. By far the overwhelming flavor note on this one is chocolate. Both dry cocoa and rich milk chocolate. The fruit notes are subtle and stronger as this coffee cools or in a cold brew.
Coffee Production / Farm:
Cerrado is the newest coffee region in Brazil. It was shaped by two important events. In 1975, the “black frost” devastated plantations in Parana — at the time, the largest coffee-producing region in Brazil — while in western São Paulo, coffee plantations were struggling against an intense nematodes infestation. These two events brought Brazil’s coffee industry to its knees.
