This Brazilian coffee is a real treat. It is very nutty with the typical chocolate richness you would expect. There is a subtle sweet-fruited note to it, similar to dried fruit. The flavor of this coffee is rich and smooth, with a delicate acidity and cream-like body. The cup I brewed this morning was super delicious!
Coffee Production / Farm:
The Brazil Salmo is a blend of 100% Cerrado region coffees from 12 producers. The coffee was purchased at farm-gate and processed by Volcafe Santos in their facility in Varginha, Minas Gerais. In Brazil, the natural process means ripe and raisin cherries are collected, cleaned and separated by weight at washing stations. The pre-drying process occurs under the sun between 2 to 7 days or more (farmers favor full sun-dried process whenever possible) and finalized in mechanical driers followed by 30 days of resting in wood boxes to homogenize the dry coffee.
Cerrado de Minas is located in the northwest of Minas Gerais state. The region is a big plateau where predominant topography is flat to slightly wavy. The altitude varies from 900 to 1250 meters above sea level. The combination of well-defined seasons, abundant sunlight throughout the year, advanced farming techniques and entrepreneurial spirit forged the pillars that sustain Cerrado as we know today.
