Why you'll love it: Brazilian coffees are known for their deep cocoa notes. One of our more darkly roasted single-origin coffees, this natural-processed coffee has strong sweetness and nuttiness.
Story of the bean: In the 1940s, coffee consumption was beginning to soar and Brazilian coffee producers struggled to find a coffee tree that could withstand the strong winds and rain in the tropical savannas south of the Amazon. The solution was a hybrid plant called Catuai, a highly productive dwarf variety prized for its sweetness. With rich chocolate flavor and a full body, the Blue Diamond is a shining example of a Brazilian Catuai.

- coffee flavor
This coffee has a buttery flavor/ texture that I've never experienced with a coffee. I like it, my wife does not. I would not drink this regularly, but this is a good choice when you want something different than the usual coffee flavor.
You know it’s good when...
The folks that come visit me want to know what kind of coffee I have prepared for them. I have converted many guests to La Colombe Brazil blue diamond. I have tried other coffees but keep coming back to blue diamond.
Excellent for any time of day. Mild but with a full-bodied taste.
