Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

Intense smoky dark chocolate, creamy mouthfeel.

This coffee has been developed in response to demand and a particular need. This is a darker roast coffee specifically aimed at home espresso machines where the user might not possess a grinder, bean to cup machines and those people that seek out the darker more intense roast styles.

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.

For espresso brewing I use 18g, resulting in a 32-35ml beverage plus the creme, about 30 second pour with grind setting to meet those parameters. The dark chocolate dominates and works especially well in milk beverages.
