Brazil - Peaberry
Process: Pulped Natural
Altitude: 950 - 1150m
Characteristics: Overtones of nougat, chocolate and marshmallow. Smooth and light-bodied with low acidity.
Generally hailing form the Cabo Verde area in Minas Gerais, the peaberry is a combination from a couple of neighbouring farms. Formed when the bean inside the cherry fails to create two parts, which gives this unique coffee its name. It is often claimed as possessing extra nutrients and therefore performing better in the cup. Grown in an average altitude of 950 meters, a climate with well defined seasons, low humidity and favourable temperatures all combine to make this a smooth and well balanced coffee.
