Brazil Mogiana Guaxupé 17/18 FC SS

(8 customer reviews)

$5.99

A very fresh and tasty Brazil! Lighter roasts show lemon, floral & soft fruit contrasted by a nuttier (almond like) undertone, a sweet edged cup. The two combine for a hints of caramel, quite tasty for you light roast fans. Medium roasts are richer, more of a developed chocolaty tone and decently less nutty; mutes up the soury floral edge, retains a little hint of soft fruit as the cup cools. Fairly neutral tasting and very chuggable. Darker promotes a thicker body and introduces a slightly bitter contrast that works very well for espresso.

Description

A lovely Brazil arrival. Smooth, clean and rich, these beans make an awesome single origin cup, or blend base. This is a Fine Cup (FC) and Strictly Soft (SS), the highest cup category in the Brazilian coffee grading.

As the world’s largest coffee producer, Brazilian lots often come from larger estates that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes. The Mogiana region, split between the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, 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.

This particular lot comes from Cooperativa Regional de Cafeicultores em Guaxupé (Cooxupé), which was established in 1937 and currently has 14,000 active members. Producers typically have farms that average 60 acres in size. Each producer cultivates and harvest their own cherries and places them on patios to dry to 15 percent moisture after which the coffee is moved to mechanical driers to precisely finish the drying to 11 percent moisture. Coffee is carefully stored until it is time for milling and export, which all takes place at the Cooxupé dry mill where traceability and quality control are carefully managed so each producer can be paid according to the quality of their coffee.

Tasting notes:
A very fresh and tasty Brazil! Best from medium to dark roasts. Lighter roasts show a sweet edge with lemon, floral & soft fruit, contrasted by a nuttier (almond like) darker undertone. With a little setup, the tones will combine to provide hints of caramel, a very tasty cup especially for the price. Too close to first crack will throw some herbal tones, but not far after first crack it will taste clean and defined. Medium roasts are richer, more of a developed chocolaty tone and decently less nutty; mutes up the sour floral edge, retains a little hint of soft fruit as the cup cools. Fairly neutral tasting and very chuggable. Darker promotes a thicker body and introduces a slightly bitter contrast that works very well for espresso.

Roasting Notes:
A nice large screen, fairly even roasting bean (will see a couple beans lighter than the others). Medium to high chaff.  Avoid light roasts unless you like sharper cups, quite tasty but will have a little acidity which many Brazil fans will shy away from.  Most will like it best at a medium roast, especially for single origin drinking, or into the darker roasts for blending.

    This was $3.99 / lb and this is the best coffee I have.
    Roasted most of the way through 2nd crack in the popcorn popper.
    Brewed in the Moka pot.
    It touches the soul.
    Looking for more like this

    These are my preferred beans for espresso. They consistently produce smooth chocolatey shots which are perfect for any espresso based drink. I typically take them 20-40 seconds into second crack, and I prefer to grind them slightly coarser for faster shots around 20-25 seconds yet the shots are never sour. They are very forgiving beans and highly recommend them for espresso. Can also Blend with a Sumatran for a festive Christmas blend.

    Roasted this coffee last week just slightly into the second crack. I’m having my first cup now, one week later and it is really tastey. Lots of chocolate notes. A great bean.

    First tried as part of the dark 3-pack; roasted in an SR-800 until it just touched second crack. The flavor was incredible – lush, smooth, nutty, chocolate; just some of the best coffee I’ve yet found. When I brought it into the house after roasting to rest, the delicious aroma literally permeated everywhere – enough so that it made all three of the air purifiers in my house kick in to overdrive. Never had that happen before.

    This is really delicious Brazilian coffee. I roasted this to full city, just short of second crack. It is deep, rich and delicious. Chocolate, roasted grains, caramel. Nothing of citrus or florals. Really nice coffee that is very well priced. I’m going to order more of this.

    How could such an inexpensive coffee taste so good? I thought I completely botched my roast (chose an inexpensive bean to experiment stovetop) but it was the most delicious bean I had in a long time. For me it was a rich cocoa butter bathed in almonds.

    Roast it dark, it’s bold. ditch the demi tasse.

    This is my new favorite coffee. I normally like darker roasted Sumatran but thought I’d give this a try. Glad I did. I dropped just a few seconds into second crack and the cup incredible. Mmmmmmmmmm!
