- Brazil Fazenda Monte Alegre Natural
Tasting Notes: Milo, cocoa powder, buttery, papaya, nice viscosity, smooth, great body. A very balanced coffee punching above its weight in flavour. Well suited to both espresso and black or with milk.
Process: Natural (bean is dried in the cherry making it more fruity). The fruitiness of this Brazil is only mild and adds a depth and fullness to the flavour while not conflicting with milk based drinks.

Roast Level: Medium-Dark
Varietal: Arabica - Mundo Novo, Catuaí, Icatú and Bourbon
