Brazil is the world's largest coffee-exporting country. Although a large portion of the coffee produced in Brazil is commodity grade, we are seeing an increasing focus on quality and sustainability in the country, particularly in recent years. Brazilian coffees are hugely popular due to their full-bodied yet simple flavour profiles. Typically boasting a rich and creamy body, with lots of chocolate and nutty flavours, Brazilian coffees are a great option for the discerning coffee drinker who wants a simple every day drinking coffee.

This Brazilian single-origin coffee comes from a farm that is pioneering both quality and sustainability in Brazil. Fazenda Pântano, named after the swamps that it neighbours, is a sustainable farm that includes natural forest reserves as well as other crops. Their commitment to protecting the local forest lands and dedication sustainability within the coffee industry in their region has earned them the sustainable farming award from the prestigious Globo Rural agricultural magazine.

Fazenda Pântano has worked closely with the Brazilian Coffee institute with an intense focus on coffee processing and flavour. With over 148 varieties on their farm and constant experimentation with coffee processing, the results of this relationship really speak for themselves.

Phaedon's tasting notes

This coffee is everything that you would want a traditional Brazilian to be. It has plenty of body, a strong nutty flavour - hazelnuts to be specific - and a lingering cocoa finish. Last but certainly not least, it has a luxurious, syrupy & creamy mouth feel that just adds to the pleasure in the cup. You won't find any bright acidity or whacky fruit flavours here, but if you're looking for a satisfying, easy-drinking kind of coffee, look no further!

Roaster's notes

About Expocaccer: Quaffee visited Expocaccer when they went to Brazil in 2016. Expocaccer is a collaboration of over 500 farmers, driven to identify specialty grade coffees from all farm members.

Prior to Expocaccer all lots were mixed and sold to the large cooperative. Now coffee lots are separated, and those that cup at 83 or more, are then offered as specialty lots.
