Many will like it as a single origin drinker but this can be used as an awesome blend base. Pretty neutral tasting and adopts flavors blended into it easily.
Brazil Mogiana 17/18 is produced by farmers organized around cooperatives in the Mogiana growing region split between the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Mogiana region is the most renowned of three major Brazilian growing regions. This region has rolling hills and uneven terrain lending to farms that are small to medium in size. As the world’s largest coffee producer, Brazilian lots often come from larger estates that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes. Our current offering is Fine Cup (FC) and Strictly Soft (SS), the highest cup category in the Brazilian coffee grading.
The aroma is very nutty and sweet. There was a surprising hint of smoke on the palate. Full bodied and low acidity – this is a traditional tasting Brazil – thick, creamy, nutty and semi-sweet. At the darker roasts a very sweet first taste, almost a little fruity, and then quickly turns darker-toned with a bakers chocolate and slightly toasted walnut flavor. Great blend base for espresso or adding body with darker tones.
Avoid light roasts with it being decently lower acidity, cup comes together at a medium roast and tastes very nice into the darker roasts. For blending, we suggest right at the 2nd crack or darker for neutral taste and good body. For single origin drinking, we would suggest more in the medium roast range for a bit mellower and sweeter cup.
