First of the new crop Brazil arrivals.
Many will like it as a single origin drinker but this can be used as an awesome blend base. Pretty neutral tasting and adopts flavors blended into it easily.
The small boutique Brazil coffees will roll in late December through February, but the aggregates (mill and co-op) start coming in around now. A very tasty and fresh bean.
Brazil Mogiana is produced by farmers organized around cooperatives in the Mogiana growing region split between the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Mogiana region 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. As the world's largest coffee producer, Brazilian lots often come from larger estates that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes.
Fuller bodied and lower acidity, a very good versatile bean. Nutty and chocolaty would be the first tones one will taste. Has a little hint of a soft fruit note at the light/medium roasts points and a bit sweeter edge to it.
