Our specialty small batch coffee for the monthly subscription for February is Brazil Espirito Santo. This coffee gets its name from the Brazilian state of Espirito Santo, where it is grown on family-owned farms that have been operating since the late 19th century. The coffee plant was introduced to Brazil in the late 18th century and by the end of the 19th century had replaced sugar cane as the country’s most produced crop.
The majority of coffee growing families in Espirito Santo are descendants of the first Italian settlers who immigrated to Brazil to start coffee farms on land that was formerly used to grow sugar cane. Today Brazil produces 33% of the world’s coffee, more than any other coffee producing nation.
The state of Espirito Santo is not Brazil’s largest coffee growing state, but it’s soil composition and climate give its coffee a unique flavor profile when compared to other Brazilian coffees. Coffee from this region is produced using a washed or semi-washed method due to the state’s humid climate and the misty environment of its mountains.
Our Brazil Espirito Santo has a medium body and light acidity. Its dominant flavor notes are vanilla, candied fruit and molasses. The soil and humid climate of Espirito Santo give this coffee a sweetness and aroma that make it stand out from other coffees grown in Brazil.
