Roasted - Brazilian Santos 2/3 SC 17/18 SS FC (Coffee Credit Selection)


Sold out. Fresh shipment expected soon

Even though nearly 75% of Brazil's coffee farms are considered small farm plantations (less than 10 acres each) Brazil has one of the coffee industry's best, most advanced coffee processing systems. It's no wonder Brazil is the world's leading coffee producer.

Brazil Santos gourmet coffee beans are processed using the natural dry method. The coffee bean is dried inside the cherry so that some of the fruit's sweetness is evident in the deliciously tasteful brewed cup of coffee.

Santos is the port much of the coffee travels through, its not a coffee region.

Reference :Strictly Soft (SS-top grade) This is a lower grown bean, and as such, doesn't have the crisp acidity associated with denser beans. It does have a medium-toned acidity that's somewhat reminiscent of tobacco/spice on first taste, but gives way to more caramelly notes. This is definitely a sweet bean, and makes a good base for espresso.
