We've got a lovely, ridiculously affordable bean, just arrived, fromthe world's largest producer of coffee: Brazil. We love the burbon varietal almost as much as the alcoholic version. This bean is the "yellow burbon" varietal - a small, punchy coffee that has praline, chocolate and citrus notes.
If, like our Casa offering, you prefer a more full-bodied Arabica coffee, then this is spot on.
This coffee is fantastic through an espresso machine, but I’ve really enjoyed it used on a stove top and Aeropress. It’s incredibly versatile, so can be brewed in many ways, yet has the complexity of a high-end single origin.
This little player would make any Brazilian World Cup team.... back of the net!
Fazenda Pântano is located in the Cerrado close to the city of Patos de Minas at an altitude of 1,150 metres and covers a total area of 550 hectares. More than 300 hectares of the land are allocated for permanent natural forest reserves, which is six times more than the legal requirement under Brazilian law.
The farm has over 200 varietals, most of which are in experimental production, and is working closely with the Brazilian Coffee Research Institute to experiment with processing and flavour.
Coffee plantations cover about 27,000 km2 (10,000 sq mi) of the country; of the approx. six billion trees, 74% are arabica and 26% robusta. The states of Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Paraná are the largest producers due to suitable landscapes, climate and rich soil. Most plantations are harvested in the dry months of May to July.
