Brazil Anil Mantiqueira - Speciality Coffee Beans
A deep, rich and chocolatey high SCA speciality coffee.
Dom Viçoso in a small municipality in Minas Gerais that developed a reputation for growing Anil, a plant used in the production of blue dyes. Known as the King of Dyes for its enchanting colour it was commonly used in the textile industry. A relative of the pea family, its growth from 1760’s was huge, but less than two generations later it had been superseded by the rise of chemical colours. This lead to the rise of coffee farming in the area, but much less so than other areas. This blend was created to showcase the unique characteristics that this lead to; some of the farms were actually one farm before, having been split amongst family members through the generations.
Located amongst the Circuito das Aguas, the area is famous for many mineral springs, and the high quality of the water. Often these springs have differing mineral contents from each other. Cocarive are based nearby in Carmo De Minas, and represent a lot of the top speciality farms that the area sustains. In recognition of this, the area has been given denomination of origin status, and is often in the top half of Cup Of Excellence scores for both early and late harvests.
Wherever possible we try to roast our coffee to order to ensure the coffee you receive is as fresh as possible. This can unfortunately mean that coffee orders will not always be shipped on the same day the order is placed. Keep an eye on your email inbox for shipping updates.
Found this Brazil to be a little bitter. Usually quite smooth but this was inconsistent. Perhaps just this batch. Good coffee usually.
This is just the best espresso coffee bean around , 10/10 , haven't found a better all-rounder
Coffee has become expensive, so I tried an alternative to Copper, but it wasn’t as good - so I came back and this coffee was so much better - I like the darker roasts and this one was perfect - smooth, rounded, deliciously bitter with a fine aftertaste. Love it.
I was given my first beans from my son. Could believe the great aroma and favour compared the my usual coffee. I made the switch immediately to Copper.
The coffees from Brazil always deliver a full flavour experience.
