Brazil: Edition 22.047
Fazenda Rio Verde
The Ipanema Estates team have been innovating in Brazilian coffee for many years now, and their reputation for consistency and high quality is well earned. This farm is a little larger (1,500 hectares, 650 of which grows coffee) than those of some of the other producers we buy from, but the Ipanema producers are no less passionate.
We're chuffed that they want to share their project – Premier Cru – with us for another year. Previously it was known as Grano Segreto, Aura Matina and Anima Verde, this year it's called Aura Magna.

Starting with biscuity sweetness, the red fruits in this cup come as a wave of raspberry which builds slowly with each sip. A finish of raisin and hazelnut becomes more prominent as the cup cools - if it lasts that long.

Medium - through first crack and push it towards, but not in to, second crack. Longer roasts will emphasise the biscuit and nut, but you want to keep the Raspberry note present by not stretching it out too far.
