Brazil - Mãe da Água (Natural) - Espresso
Mae de Agua is an excellent example of a reliably smooth and balanced Brazil. It displays all the characteristics of a great Brazilian coffee while presenting an interesting sweetness and a delicate acidity. If you are looking for a solid, repeatable coffee for espresso, this is the coffee for you.
Why did we buy this coffee?
We cupped around 30 different Brazils in our search for a new single origin espresso. Mae de Agua stood out to us immediately due to its very clean and smooth profile.
What's good about it?
Mae de Agua has a sugary sweet note of white chocolate that really lifts this coffee above most other Brazil’s. It is an exceptional espresso, standing out as particularly sweet and moreish as a flat white. This is a low acidity coffee so it also works very well with plant based milks.
What machines can I make this coffee on?
Due to it's flexible nature, it works well in all kinds of espresso machines, whether you have a high end setup such as a Rocket, Marzocco, Expobar (Pro-Sumer) or the likes of a Rancilio Silvia, Gaggia Classic, De'Longhi or Dualit.
Don't have an espresso machine?
This coffee will also work well in a Cafetiere, Clever Dripper or Aeropress, offering you a full bodied full immersion coffee. Mae de Agua also works superbly well as a batch brewed filter.
