Everything you want to know
Brazilian coffees are distinguished by their natural roundness, giving an extremely clean cup that binds to any other origin without overpowering the taste. This is why it's frequently used as a base for blends. Of course it's impossible to speak of" classic Brazilian coffee" because of the vast size of this country, but some areas give a very uniform and stable bean quality.
This Alta Mogiana coffee has an intense body with a good acidity and a nice medium sweetness: the classic Brazilian taste. For this evaluation, this coffee was tasted and extracted in espresso at 93°C, with an extraction of 25 ml in 25 seconds. The degassing of the coffee took about 48 hours. The crema has a hazelnut color, with slightly reddish hues. We can smell clear sensations of toast and biscuit, in some cases of cocoa biscuit. To the taste, the coffee has a medium body and a very pleasant sweetness, harmonized by a slight bitter sensation and a very soft acidity. A perfect coffee for espresso or moka.
