Long and Short Coffee - Pereira, Brazil - Natural

Getting product details...

From Jeremy @ Long & Short Coffee:

The farm is actually called Santa Ines, but it’s been in the Pereira family since 1979. After many years of hard work, they won the Cup of Excellence in the Pulped Natural category with a score of 95.85! It’s situated in the southern part of Minas Gerais, Serra Da Mantiquiera which was the first region in the country to obtain the Geographical Indication seal for coffee in 2011. It’s also an area of the country well known for its mineral water springs, a perfect combination. Sitting within a mountainous region it’s blessed with the triple threat of unique terroir, high (for Brazil) altitudes, and weather conditions.

During harvest season, the coffees are mechanically picked from the trees at the optimal time for ripeness, and taken to the drying patio where they are separated into groups, depending on the level of ripeness. From here the coffee is then dried for 7 -10 days before being finished for 2-3 days with careful temperature monitoring to ensure the correct moisture content is reached. Once dry the coffee is then left to rest in large tulvas for up to 30 days before being milled ready for harvest.

This is a real easy drinker like any great Brazilian coffee, with heaps of sweetness and a nice subtle cocoa edge. The fruits are there too: there’s some raspberry and perhaps even strawberry, but like any low-grown coffee, these are just hints and not as potent as in other fruitier styles of coffee. They simply add to make a rather tasty, rounded and interesting cup.
