My Brazil cup of excellence arrived today in port and should be with me by the weekend. This year we have our hand in two lots. An old favourite (for quite a few years now) is the Brazil Santa Terrazina organic. It has a history of doing well in COE competitions and this year placed ninth. We decided to buy some of mainly becuase we like the famr and the coffee, and it seemed like a nice thing to do. The bonus is we are in the good company of Ecco Caffè (USA), Stumptown Coffee Roasters (USA), 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters (Canada), Cafés El Magnífico (Spain),, Mokkamestarit Oy (Finland), Groundwork Coffee Co. (USA) and PT’s Coffee (USA). Got to say I’m honoured to have the coffee and honoured to be in that mix of buyers. It tells you how good a coffee it is.
We also have some of lot 27 called Sítio Das Jaboticabas, that’s a very exiting coffee. Its been such a time since I cupped it I cant remember that much about it, apart from its silkiness and sweetness. Enough to say I’m looking forward to trying it again. I hope to get it on the site over the weekend as long as I can nail the roast for it.
So two reasons to be cheerful
