Brazil Carmo de Minas - 12 oz.
This lot has a nice intermingling of chocolate, nut, and developed sugar sweetness. And with a thick, syrupy body makes a great use as an espresso. The dry grounds smell powdered with milk chocolate and malt, along with dry cherry and molasses cookie. This rather sweet aroma carries over in the brewing coffee, with wetted grounds emanating a scent of chocolate syrup and blackberry, and caramel/nut. Borgas has a flavor of coffee candy (vanilla, caramel, and of course coffee) along with fruited notes that appear as the coffee cools. Overall, this is a really nice lot of Brazilian coffee that cups with relative cleanliness.
