Brazil Salmo Plus Natural$15.00 per 12oz. bag
Salmo Plus Natural is a combination of coffees from five farms (fazendas) in two top-quality regions: Fazendas Lenheiros, Alcaan, Santa Barbara and Queixadas from Cerrado and Fazenda do Lobo from Sul de Minas. Ripe and raisin cherries (cherries left to dry on the tree) were mechanically harvested, sent to the washing station on the farm by tractors and were cleaned and separated by density (ripe to one side, raisin to the other). They were dried in the sun on cement patios and then put in mechanical driers to ensure an even result. After drying, they rested in wooden boxes for 30-plus days before being hulled and sent for additional reprocessing (sorted by screens and with color and density machines).
CUP PROFILE: Sweet and complex, with notes of cocoa, raisin and strawberry. The expected bold body from the Cerrado region benefits from the addition of playful fruit notes from Sul de Minas.
