Brasil Canaan Estate 2023
Chocolate crème, subtle citrus & allspice
Tasting notes: Chocolate crème, subtle citrus & allspice
Region: Carmo de Minas
Farm: Canaan Estate
Elevation: 3,400 ft
Processing: Natural, patio dried
The Canaan farm itself is located in the mountainous Mantiqueira de Minas region, a sub-region of the Carmo de Minas area famous for the complex coffees produced in its many microclimates. Our Canaan Estate is a natural coffee, sun dried on patios after careful sorting. Compared to other origins it is not grown at great altitude but within the Brasilian context its 3,400 feet above sea level is among the higher grown.
Although in the cup Canaan Estate is surprisingly clean, and brighter than many Brasils, its overall character is one of chocolatey sweetness. In addition to the dominant milk chocolate flavors it features a subtle citrus acidity, especially as pour over, as well as notes of allspice. The mouthfeel is firmly textured, creamy without being cloying, and leads us to a lightly dry finish with plenty of caramel and chocolate flavor.
Fonte’s Canaan Estate is a coffee you can rely on, deeply satisfying and delicious in any brewing method. Don’t miss this chance to share in its nuanced sweetness.
