Brazil: Fazenda Progresso
Cocoa. Peanut butter. Red fruit.
Fazenda Progresso is a new type of large-scale Brazillian coffee farming. While produced on a massive scale, the coffee is hand picked and dried using African raised beds. They produce both natural and pulp-natural coffees on the farm. We chose the pulp-natural lot. A lot rides on the quality of this coffee. We use this Brazil as the backbone of our espresso blend and many of our other blends. As a single origin, it is a classic Brazillian coffee. Mild, yet with potent lingering sweetness. We love the mix of chocolate and peanut butter flavors and the subdued citrus acidity.
