Brazil - Soledade de Minas (Natural) - Filter
We were looking for a Brazilian filter coffee that challenges expectations - this coffee reminds us of a sweeter, more balanced version of our much loved Fazenda Esperanca from last year.
This coffee has a light, transparent body that really allows the notes of fresh strawberry and caramel to shine. While some natural Brazil’s can be intensely boozy, this coffee is very clean while being very complex. It is a firm favourite in our roastery!
Fazenda Santa Rosa is located in the area of Soledade de Minas. The tropical climate, well drained soils and the modern processing facilities make the Santa Rosa Estate a model for the production of specialty coffee in Brazil. Acquired in 1986 by the present owners, it was an uncultivated area at the time. Today the property has 90 hectares of plantations implanted. Acaiá, Catuaí and Icatú Amarelo are the varieties of coffee grown today.
