What’s this we have here? Another top-shelf Brazil, hell yeah! When selecting coffees from Brazil, there is a lot of choice (almost too much) since it’s been the world’s leading coffee producer for 150 years and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change anytime soon. In 2016 it is thought that 2.59 million metric tonnes of coffee was produced in Brazil alone, accounting for 26% of the total global coffee production.
This coffee is produced by Mió Estate, located in Monte Santo. In 2020 Mió decided to do something quite radical by deciding to oversee every part of its supply chain. In collaboration with some great companies, they became not only a farm but an exporter, an importer and a warehouse in the UK.
The unique location of this farm combines two distinct terrains, one bringing a citric acidity, the other a full body and sweetness to Mió’s coffee. The farm dedicates the same amount of land to growing coffee as they do to native forest reserves as they strongly believe in the importance of preserving the natural characteristics of the land.
So you might be wondering what makes this stand out to all the other Brazil’s we’ve tasted? We can certainly say that the creamy texture of this coffee is what really caught our attention, followed by its soft acidity. It’s got that quintessential nutty Brazil thing and sweet sugary notes that are reminiscent of nougat or maple syrup. It works great with milk too, it’s like having a slice of coffee and walnut cake.
