In This Cup: chocolate fudge, Fuji-apple, hazelnut, rum raisin ice cream
After sampling Henrique's coffees, we decided we wanted to do something a bit different: create a blended green coffee using our favorites from among all the varieties that we had cupped. So we did, cupping various combinations of four of our five favorite varieties until we found the right proportions. Henrique and his team were kind enough to accommodate us by blending the green coffee we chose (a lot of green coffee) to our specs and creating our proprietary blend composed primarily of Peaberries, and balanced out by Catuacai, Yellow Bourbon, Yellow Caturra. The resulting coffee has prominent notes of rum raisin ice cream and dark chocolate fudge with a crisp Fuji-apple-like acidity. This is the second year that we have partnered with Henrique and Camocim - and it’s the start of a long-lasting, Direct Trade relationship.
