Brazil Natural Red Catuai Faz. Agua Limpa
Most recent arrival May 2013 packed in Grainpro.
We offered this coffee a few months ago and it developed a legion of fans who requested its return, now realized.
The farm, which is named after the region traditionally called Agua Limpa, was
first started by their father and is now managed by Fernando and brother
Ricardo. The two brothers work hard to preserve conservation areas, river
sources, reforestation, and they value the determination of their employees to
share this respect for the land. Among coffee plants there is also an array of
wildlife and other plant life, including cedar, trumpet trees, canaries, forest
fox, tiger cat.
Located in the Cerrado Mineiro region, the farm flourishes in the hot and humind
summers with plentiful rainfall. The varietal is red catuai and the process is
natural, meaning the coffee fruit is left on the seed while it dries, giving the coffee
an inherently fruity taste.
- Farmer: Fernando Gontijo de Almeida
- Farm: Agua Limpa
- Processing: Natural
- Region: Cerrado Mineiro
Cup Characteristics: Pronounced cocoa texture and flavor. Very clean, smooth. As an espresso it had some of the characteristic 'bite' of Brazil naturals but not over the top. Acidity is medium, sweet. Long finish, mouth coating. Good component choice for traditional espresso blends.
