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.
