Why You'll Love It:
This rare selection from the highlands of the State of São Paulo displays flavors never before seen in Brazilian coffee. Rich caramel flavors support aromas of fine red wine and the sweetness of ripe berries.
Story of the Bean:
We’re all familiar with the distinctly nutty flavor of Brazilian coffee however, this offering is the result of a ground-breaking experiment in drying. In a process called controlled fermentation, flavors are created by utilizing microorganisms in much the same as in wine and beer production. The result is a remarkably fruit forward coffee displaying flavors of grapes and dark chocolate. This iconoclastic coffee creates an endlessly complex cup.

- specialty coffee
- Kalita Wave
After tasting this coffee I just had to leave a review here. The aroma of fresh merlot jumps right out of the bag and carries over really nicely in the cup. I brewed it up using my Kalita Wave dripper. After dialing in correctly- expect a real treat. This is very unique for a Brazilian coffee and really excites me about the future of specialty coffee coming from Brazil.
