Come in to try the Brazilian coffee we are offering on the Clover!

Brazil – Agua Preta

Direct Trade / ‘In Season’ offering

Solid milk chocolate, vanilla bean and pecan make Agua Preta remarkably comforting. The smooth, steady body and soft acidity sip so pleasantly that your cup will be empty before you know it. The finish lingers just enough to leave the palate with charming notes of dry spice and roasted hazelnut.

Fazenda Santa Ines is the stuff of legend amongst Brazilian coffee farms. It is located in the Serra do Montiquiera mountain range in Carmo de Minas, a rugged, sloping terrain, with good altitude and natural water springs. The farm’s coffee is produced using the “pulped natural” method. The coffee cherries are harvested and the skin is removed, leaving the sticky dense mucilage and parchment surrounding the seed. This sticky coffee is then moved to a concrete patio and spread out in a very thin layer to dry under sunlight. When the unique topography of Carmo de Minas is combined with the stellar execution of Santa Ines, the pulped natural processing method yields coffees of unrivaled sweetness and amazingly thick body.
