Bean Box Breakdown

You won't believe it's a Brazilian! In this rare and flavorful medium roast, unusually sweet berry and lemon fruit tart flavors brighten a smooth, nutella-like base of chocolate and toasted hazelnut.

Scott, Herkimer's coffee buyer, found this exquisite lot while visiting the Sitio Da Torre farm-- it stood out among two cupping tables of coffee samples. While most coffee cherries in Brazil are sorted mechanically, this lot was an "experiment" in hand-sorting the ripest cherries into a single, small lot. It was slated for the Cup of Excellence competition, but Scott talked them into selling it to Herkimer instead!

We feel lucky and excited to offer a limited run of this fantastic find, a true example of that "fairy tale ending" that results when roasters and growers nurture close, friendly direct-trade partnerships.

Herkimer Coffee Story

This special prep coffee was slated for COE competition before we committed to buy the entire lot. Atypical natural profile of bright lemon, blackberry and rosehip tea round out the acidity, soft hazelnut and milk chocolate fill the body. Fazenda Sitio da Torre is located in a protected geographical coffee region known as Mantiqueira de Minas, the Southernmost portion of Carmo de Minas. Producer: Alvaro Antonio Pereira Coli.

"Would give this 2 and a half if I could. Not sure why this is considered top shelf. A little too earthy and the tastes, though quite interesting, we're too strange for me. Brewed french press. Guess a second try would be in order, but not likely with so many coffees here."
