Brazil is coming up in the world of specialty coffee. It probably always was up in Europe, where Brazil's finest coffees, sweetly rounded and low in acidity, anchored the continent's leading blends. In the United States, however, Brazil was mainly known for producing vast volumes of cheap, mass-processed arabica coffees that found their nameless way into supermarket cans and bottles. Some years ago, however, a cadre of forward-thinking Brazilian coffee growers formed the Brazil Specialty Coffee Association and set out to simultaneously improve the distinction and quality of their coffees while promoting them in consumer countries ...

Serra Negra is a blend of coffees from three of the most admired Brazilian growing regions, Mogiana, Sul de Minas, and the Cerrado.

Slightly fermented, musty tones pleasingly complicate this sweet, rich, round-bodied Brazil, reading as leather and spice in the nose, and spice, fruit, and chocolate in the cup. Just enough acidity to keep the cup lively. A round, sweet, rather exotically nuanced cup that should please most coffee romantics.

This clean Brazil is excellent on its own merrit, but fantastic to round out and add crema to your favorite espresso blends. (add 10 to 20%) A must have for your cellar.

Roast: City+ to Full City will yeild a very nice profile!
