Silver Oak Coffee - Single Estate: Fazenda Progresso, Brazil

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

Very smooth with notes of caramel, chocolate, caramel and a little brazil nut plus the slightest hint of red apple. Lingering creamy mouthfeel.

Fazenda Progresso started life as a vegetable farm and became known for being a large producer of potatoes but fortunately for us they diversified into coffee. Situated in the mountainous region of Bahia in northern Brazil this coffee is grown at 1200m. The farm is a total of 22000 hectares 1000 hectares of which are under coffee.

The farm has its own processing facilities where control is maintained over quality. Unusually for many Brazilian farms, picking is undertaken by hand and two passes are made per lot. This pulped natural coffee is first pulped to remove the skin then dried in the sun on patios with the mucilage attached. Further processing completes the drying and removal of the now dried outer layers revealing the bean in parchment.

I like to roast pulped natural coffees a couple of degrees higher than I do washed coffees since I won't lose the acidity and can then develop better body to compliment the sweet chocolate notes. I dose slightly higher than my normal recommendation at 70g/L.
