Brazil Ipanema Dulce

Brazil Ipanema Dulce

This Brazil comes from Fazenda Ipanema, where the RFA, Rainforest Alliance, certification mandates sustainable ecological and economic improvements. The nature and layout of the Fazenda farm means the ripest of coffee cherry can be picked and sundried on the patios. The fruit dries and acts to enhance the flavor in the bean. Once dried, it is hulled and placed into wooden silos for the “reposo” or resting period. 45 days later, lot samples are taken and bags are filled for export. Arriving on the west coast, the coffee will be in a state of shock.

Café de los Muertos likes Brazil Ipanema Dulce for its “Dulce”, sweet, fruity character similar to a bing cherry with the mildest of acidity. You may also taste: orange blossoms, honey, orange citrus, raisin, dried cherry and chocolate. Brazil Fazenda Ipanema works well where smoothness is your goal. While we choose to roast this coffee for its flavor, its versatility is great.

Café de los Muertos has its opinions, feel free to disagree, but we think this coffee is good for: Auto Drip, French Press, Chemex, espresso, and any other method you can come up with. We really like the versatility of this bean!
Medium Roast We roast this bean right in the middle. We love the smoothness of the bean, but it also has an awesome sweetness that works so well with all applications.
