<p>Capadocia is a farm in Sul de Minas, Brazil owned and operated by Augusto Ferreira & his wife Patricia. I (Sean) had the pleasure of visiting with them when I visited Brazil in 2019 (back in the pre-covid era), you can read more about it <a href="https://www.moustachecoffeeclub.com/origin-report-brazil-2019" > here </a>. They are both under 30, but with 4 generations of coffee-producing heritage at their disposal - their relatively young farm is putting out some stellar coffees. They produce mainly red and yellow Catuai - and process everything on their farm naturally, drying the coffees on concrete patios and raised beds in partial shade. </p>
<p>
Most naturals are notable for their more intense flavors, but this particular lot gives us a richer, smoother profile with a solid chocolatey base. We're picking up on a coconut-like creaminess and some nutty, almond-like tones that make for a smooth sipping cup of coffee. We're really impressed by the Ferreira's quality output for such young producers, and we wish them more success in future harvests!</p>

Smooth, yummy and makes me happy

First order from this coffee club. Had to do a little research to determine what brewing parameters would help bring out the best taste. Used a medium grind setting for my pour over. Used bottled water ( not sure if that really makes a difference). Boiled the water and let it sit for about a minute before pouring. Bloom for about 40 seconds. And then two pours of about 100g. Used around 17g water per gram of coffee. At first I did not get the lighter notes off coconut. But after the coffee cooled down a little I could easily taste the coconutish creaminess! So good! So easy to sip! Looking forward to my next cup!

Very mild but has a definite flavor. I tend to prefer the milder coffees and love that rhey come so fresh.

Not for me

I found this one a bit bland. The chocolate and nutty flavors were there, but very mild.
