Coffee Review - Brazil Medium Roast by Carvalho Coffee
  • Carvalho Coffee

    Oakville, Ontario, Canada
  • Brazilian, Medium Roast

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: April 2012
Origin: Brazil Price: CAD $10.00/250 grams (8.8 oz.)

Blind Assessment: Delicate, sweetly lyric coffee. Dark chocolate, vanilla, almond in aroma and cup. Gentle, crisp acidity; light but very silky mouthfeel. A fine, sweet-toned finish fades rather quickly.

Notes: Processed by the pulped natural method, in which the skin is removed from the coffee fruit immediately after picking, but the seeds or beans are dried with the sweet pulp, or fruit flesh, still adhering to them. Produced from trees of the heirloom Yellow Bourbon variety of Arabica. The Carvalho family has been growing coffee in Brazil since 1890 and expanded their operation in 2000 to include roasting in Brazil and Oakville, Ontario, Canada. The company motto is “We Grow It, We Roast It, You Brew It.” Visit or call 905-469-6063 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Crisp, subtle, silky. An attractive alternative for those who avoid intense, acidy coffees for reasons of health or taste.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
