Brazilian Santos ground with Cardamom.
All the Brazilian positive notes with that added refreshing cardamom.
Brazil is known the world over as one of the most prolific and dedicated of coffee producers. This Brazilian Santos roasted dark. It produces a rich, full-bodied flavor yet maintains the smoothness usually found in a lighter roast. Featuring a pleasant cinnamon nuance and undertones of dark chocolate, this bean is perfect for anything from filter coffee to espresso. If you’re looking for a low-acid coffee, this roast is an excellent way to experience a dark roast and low acidity in a single cup!
About one-third of all of the world’s coffee is grown in Brazil, and much of Brazil’s premium coffee is labeled Santos after the port it is shipped through. Brazil is the largest exporter in the world, supplying approximately 60% of the world’s coffee – this is due in part to the sheer size of the country. While Brazil is a prolific exporter, it’s average elevation for coffee production is only about 1,100 meters. This qualifies most of it as High Grown Coffee (900-1,200 meters), but some crops certainly fall below that threshold.
Many high quality blends are made from either Bourbon Santos or Brazil Cerrado due to the ability of Brazilian coffees to take dark roasts without turning overly bitter. This is due in part to the mild, balance flavour of Brazilian coffee beans.
Sweet, caramel flavours, with smooth body and mild acidity.
