Brazil Mogiana Guaxupé 17/18 FC SS

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! 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.

Roasting Notes:
A nice large screen, even roasting bean. Medium to high chaff.  Avoid light roasts unless you like sharper cups, quite tasty being highly rated 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.

Colombian Supremo BCT Select

Supremo is Colombia’s top export grade- not taste related, basically means larger sized beans; containes screen size 17 and 18. This is versus an excelso grade coffee, which is screen 15/16.

Tasting Notes:
The aroma of this coffee is very nice; sweet with with a little spice & floral notes. Best at a medium to borderline dark roast.  Sweet upfront with a hint of crispness balanced with a stronger toasted walnut/chocolaty undertone. A little hint of acidity at the medium roast point really creates a nicely balanced cup with a broad flavor profile. Touching 2nd crack builds some body and will add some smoky and roasty notes that can compliment the classic Colombian profile.

Roasting Notes:
This bean is very versatile when it comes to roasting; good from lighter side of medium to as dark as you want to go. Main recommendation would be in the medium ballpark, smooth and accommodating to almost everyone. Be sure to try different roast points for it will greatly vary what flavors are accentuated.

Costa Rican Palmares SHB EP Monte Crisol

This is a very nice Co-op production by COOPEPALMARES, they have a state of the art processing facility with certifications in quality and environmental management. The wet mill utilizes recycled water and the mechanical dryers recirculate airflow to maximize furnace efficiency. The facility also has an organic fertilizer production plant and a water treatment plant.

COOPEPALMARES operates two supermarkets in Palmares and sells roasted coffee for national consumption (although the nicer chops like this tend to get more money when exported). Coop members have access to low interest loans and healthcare for their families at the coop-run health center and mobile clinic.

Tasting Notes: A nice, clean and fresh Costa. Best at medium to dark roast but lighter roasts do show some curb appeal: classic Costa sweet floral acidity, a little bit on the lemony side balanced with a dry nutty/chocolate undertones. As the roasting pushes more into the medium category, the cup develops a bit more body and reduced acidity levels giving a much smoother mouthfeel and more defined chocolaty factor. Creates a wonderful balance of tones. A little lighter floral, a little chocolaty/nutty, very pleasant drinker. Darker roasts hold up nicely as well, turn the cup more stronger and more bakers chocolate like, the roasty notes from darker roasting do compliment the cup. Much more of a chocolate bomb with slightly nutty accents.

Roasting Notes: As with most Costa Rican coffee, the medium roast mark tends to be where they shine. Great everyday drinkers that show some bright complexities on more mild mannered cups. Everyone tends to like a nice Costa, a easy guess on what to serve a crowd of friends or family. A good screen of coffee, easy to roast. Even roasting with medium chaff levels.
