"BACKGROUND Brazil Cerrado 17/18 FC SS coffee is sourced from the Cooperativa dos Cafeicultores do Cerrado Ltda., also know as EXPOCACCER. EXPOCACCER is renowned for its development of employees in coffee classification, cupping, and preparation. Coffee is grown at an altitude of 850 – 1,100 meters in soil high in clay minerals. PROCESSING These beans are fully washed. Coffees prepared via this process tend to be bright, and generally make a very clean cup. In this method, the farmer picks a ripe cherry, which is then taken to the wet mill where it is pulped. Pulping is the removal of the outermost fruit skin. Next it is put in water with any floaters being discarded as defects. The coffee is then fermented and washed to remove any remaining fruit. It is then dried on a raised screen bed to 10-12% moisture content. The parchment stays with the green bean until it is milled at the dry mill, after which it is ready for sorting, grading, bagging, and export. At this point, we purchase the coffee and roast it to our specifications in order to unearth the origin flavors of these beans. FLAVOR This exceptional coffee is smooth with a sweet creamy body. It has a pleasantly balanced acidity with prominent flavors of walnut and cocoa powder. The soft swallow makes this coffee an easy drinker. The smooth richness this coffee demonstrates as espresso makes for much enjoyment."
