The sheer volume of coffee that Brazil produces is mind-boggling, but here we are having managed to snag some of its best. These two tiny lots of coffee come from a farm called Fazenda Santuario Sul, literally the Southern Sanctuary Farm. Luis Paulo Pereira and his team are pushing the boundaries of Brazilian coffee, planting some really exceptional varietals and taking the coffee through experimental processes. The two lots we purchased with help from our friends at CCS are totally unlike the Brazilian coffee you're likely used to. The first lot was a honey processed SL-28, a varietal grown almost exclusively in Kenya. There's tons of really unique and complex tropical fruit flavors thanks to the processing, but the processing has helped round out some of the more aggressive acidity SL-28 is typically known for, to create a juicy mandarin orange quality. The second lot we purchased is a varietal that goes by a few different names. B300, or Bourboncito/Bourboncillo, is a low-yield, high quality dwarf Bourbon varietal. This particular lot is washed, which gives it an acidity often not found in Brazilian coffee, as a large majority of the coffee coming from there arrives as a natural or pulped natural. Look for intense lemon aromatics and juicy, sweet stone fruit on the palate.
