    There were things I loved about this coffee, and things I really didn't like. I thought it was almost undrinkable when hot, with a strong umami/tomato. My initial reaction was that it had a character like some Kenyans.

    That muted when cooled. I found a milk chocolate character, low acidity, lemon zest, some tropicality/pineapple. There was definitely something vegetal/tropical to it.

    Cupping Method:This was a blind tasting done with a Hario v60 as part of the Leaderboard Coffee Game, S10, Coffee #5.

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Brazil
Brazil, the world's largest coffee producer, has traditionally been known for its vast output of commodity-grade coffee, including a significant volume of Robusta beans. However, in recent years, the country has made a concerted effort to enhance the quality of its microlots, aiming to solidify its reputation within the specialty coffee sector including greater cultivation of higher-quality Arabica. These initiatives have contributed to developing coffee microlots with distinct flavor profiles, with Brazilian coffee notably known for rich notes of chocolate, nuts, and fruit.
Bean Source Region: Minas Gerais
Brazil's shift from commodity production to specialty grade Arabica has resulted in the Minas Gerais region producing coffee renowned for its outstanding quality and rich flavors. The state's unique combination of high altitude, fertile soil, and favorable climate provides ideal growing conditions for coffee, resulting in beans with a well-balanced profile characterized by a pleasant aroma, mild acidity, and a smooth, full-bodied taste.
