Bean of the Month - Brazil Kaparao

Brazil Kaparao produces a clean and well balanced cup, with flavour notes of red fruit and caramel, crisp green apple acidity, a full body, syrupy mouthfeel and a sweet hazelnut aftertaste.

These beans are grown in the “Serra do Caparao” - a mountainous region, situated in the south-west of Brazil on the border of Minas Gerais and Espirito Santo. This region has a unique climate and topography, surrounded by a native rainforest known as Mata Atlantica. The area's micro-climate records the lowest temperatures of both states, producing high quality coffee due to slow cherry maturation, meaning a later harvest in November and December known as the “Flowers of March”.

This micro-climate not only produces amazing coffee but lends to a simplicity of lifestyle for the farmers and their families, where coffee is their only source of income. This means they focus solely on quality improvement and diversity in their coffee processes. Producers explore different drying processes including Natural, Pulped Natural and Honey through to Controlled Fermentation. This leads to different profiles from season to season, ultimately resulting in a new and exciting experience in the cup.

As this is a full bodied coffee, we recommend brewing this bean with a stovetop device such as the Bialetti Moka Express or Bialetti Venus
