Taste Notes

Creamy chocolate and nuts.


Sitio Serra Negra is located in a community called Lavrinhaa municipality in the state of Sao Paulo. The varietal is a Yellow Catuai and it is bright yellow when fully ripened. Small farms in Brazil are called Sitios, and Serra Negra is owned by Paulo Bernardes and his family have been growing coffee here for 30 years.

For this naturally processed coffee the beans are first sorted according to density. Drying requires a great deal of care and specialized handling, resulting in a coffee with a more aromatic cup quality, which is also rich and clean. The complex flavors of the beans are preserved by harvesting them at exactly
the right stage of ripeness. The entire coffee cherry is dried and the drying fruit imparts flavour to the bean inside.

This is your typical Brazil coffee style. Big and creamy body with low acidity and dominant chocolate and nut flavours. An ideal coffee as an espresso base for milk drinks with a silky smooth and full body. These types of coffees won’t challenge your taste buds with vibrant fruits and zingy acidity that other origins might but for an easy all day coffee this wins everytime.
