Product Description

1kg of 100% Arabica Brazil Monte Alegre Espresso whole bean coffee - medium-dark roast - excellent for espresso, plunger or filter style coffee.

This is without doubt one of the best quality Brazil's on the market (as at late 2013) - mix of 3 different processing types to create a perfectly balanced coffee and similar in many respects to the Ipanema Espresso blend.

Brazil coffee is renowned for its body, crema, sweetness.
This coffee is low acid and produces exceptional bittersweet and chocolate roast tastes.

The result is a perfectly balanced coffee that we think punches way above it's weight as a Single Origin.

Body: Full 

Aroma: Classic Brazil nuttiness

Flavour: A very clean cup - balanced caramel with a soft vanilla finish

Roaster's Notes

Terrific balance, slight nutty taste and strong chocolate toffee finish that tends towards vanilla as the cup cools.
