Filter roast: Toffee and honey are at the forefront of this roast
Espresso roast: The chocolatey note is more profound
This might just be one of the first naturally processed Classic coffees we've had. We can't say for certain, because we've sort of lost track of all the releases over the last 3 years. It was produced in the rolling landscape of South East Brazil, in one of the most well-known regions for coffee production. On the map, just a stone's throw from the bright lights of São Paulo. The Betti family run this very small coffee farm, with their focus being on quality and sustainability.
The family have implemented a number of practices to reduce their environmental impact, including using natural fertilisers and reducing water usage. The farm also has a program in place to protect and preserve the surrounding ecosystem, which includes reforestation efforts and the creation of natural habitats for local wild life.
The slower maturation of the Yellow Catuai variety during processing, contributes to a sweet and complex cup. It's full of toffee and honey notes, is super sweet, and there's definitely a hint of chocolate to be found. We'd describe it as having a brown sugar sweetness and very low acidity. With milk we were hit upfront with golden Caramilk notes. This one is a real pleasure to drink.
