Brazil is a well-known coffee producing giant. They source around one-third of the world's coffee, making them the largest coffee producer on the globe! Of course, most of this is lower grade Arabica. However, this country is capable of producing speciality coffees.
This particular type is a standard speciality quality coffee. It is dry-processed, meaning the beans are patio-dried while they are still in the cherry. Since the coffees are dried in contact with the sweet mucilage, the coffee's cup profile will be heavy in body, sweet, smooth, and complex. The 17/18 screen size has a more consistent flavour without the intense fruit notes that can turn up in smaller screen sized beans, indicating varying bean maturity.
This type carries three quality classifications:
- NY (New York) 2/3; specifies the quality is standard to the Green Coffee Association of New York. 2/3 refers to the number of defects permitted in the lot, a maximum of nine secondary defects, and no primary defects.
- SSFC (Strictly Soft Fine Cup); Strictly Soft beans are grown at relatively low altitudes (under 1200 meters). Beans grown at lower altitudes mature quickly and produce a lighter, less dense bean. This term also means the beans are free of hard rioy (harsh taste) taints. Fine Cup means it is a speciality grade coffee.
- 17/18 refers to the screen size. These beans are one screen size larger than 14/16, denoting a larger bean. A larger bean size is generally linked to higher quality.
When you buy your speciality coffee from Lalico Coffee, you support small farms producing high-quality coffees. Many benefit from Fairtrade Federation and Rainforest Alliance initiatives that protect workers' rights and the environment.
Our coffee is hand-roasted to order for you. I guarantee it hasn't been sitting on a supermarket shelf for weeks, getting stale! Every batch is individually profile roasted with care. Every coffee has different characteristics, and therefore its individual profile is replicated, keeping high quality consistent.
Kessy and I would like you to experiment with new flavours from different countries, so we often send free samples with your order for you to enjoy.
