BRAZIL MANTIQUIERA DE MINAS SAN ANTONIO - NATURAL COFFEE

Tasting Notes: Smooth, clean, full bodied and lower acidity; this is a very tasty Brazilian. With lighter roasts, one can detect just a hint of acidity, a little floral upfront but balanced with a fuller body and dry complex chocolate like tones, far less nutty than any of the other Brazil’s we have on offer. One may still be able to detect a hint of a nutty factor especially at light roasts. Medium roasts are where we thought this cup to shine, almost no acidity, a milky body and pretty straight forward chocolaty factor. Darker roasts add some strength and accentuate the dryer chocolaty tones adding in some roasty smoky tones to the mix, which many will love.

Origin Notes: Coming from a family owned farms in the Mantiqueira de Minas region within the state Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Mantiqueira de Minas region has a protected designation of origin (PDO) because of the regions renowned coffee reputation and optimal growing conditions.

The region is comprised of 25 municipalities with more than 9,000 producers, nearly 90 percent considered small producers. These small producers are organized through cooperatives that operate in the region to bring their coffee to the international market. This collective of small producers is distinct in Brazil where lots often come from larger estates that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes.
