Episode 14 Brazil Fazenda Cachoeria Canario 2008-2009 Monday the 12th of January 2009

A staple, a big favorite, a stunning example of what a very fine brazil should be. This Brazil Fazenda Cachoeira pure yellow bourbon is from the Minas Gerais area is one of my all time perfect cups, with this years not disappointing.

This coffee sparked a change in what I thought I knew about coffee, Gabriel the farmer continues to produce better and better coffee year on year. Beware not all Cachoeira is as good as this one we offer. Some farmers have stolen the name because of Gabriel's reputation (accolades and cup of excellence awards everywhere). Also some roasters/resellers sell the cheaper grade coffee from the same farm, under the same banner.

Because of ours and our importers relationship with Gabriel we get access to the cream of his crop, so this is one of the best Brazil's in the world.

This is as good as every crop that's come before it amazes me it always seems to improve, I'm going to have to make a new cupping sheet for over 100 if this continues.

In the cup what really hits you is its outstanding sweetness, and chocolate and caramel and toffee, is this the perfect espresso? Well its perfect to example how good single estate coffee can be in the espresso machine. As close to perfection in a cup for me, astounding truly astounding.
