Brazil - Fazenda Laranjal
Situated within the mountainous region of Poços de Caldas in southeastern Brazil, Laranjal Farm has steep topography, volcanic soil, and a mild climate. On 124 hectares, several different coffee varieties are produced on the farm. Coffee is hand-picked by 22 permanent employees and dried on either concrete patios for washed process, or on asphalt for natural coffee like this one.
This coffee does well what Brazilian coffee does best: low acidity, round body and ample sweetness. It is roasted for balance and holds its own through both filter and espresso. Its prominent nutty and chocolaty notes make this familiar and comforting, but with the sophistication of specialty-grade. For those dabbling into specialty, but aren’t ready to give up their cream and sugar just yet, this is the coffee for you.
Our Brazilian isn’t trying to be the loudest in the room, but rather the kind, quiet one that you can talk to for hours, and leave feeling like you’ve known forever.
