Brazil Serra Negra by PT's Coffee Roasting Co. Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2002
Origin: Sul de Minas, Cerrado, and Mogiana growing regions, Brazil. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Slight fermented, musty tones pleasingly complicate this sweet, rich, round- bodied Brazil, reading as leather and spice in the nose, and spice, fruit and chocolate in the cup. Just enough acidity to keep the cup lively.

Notes: Serra Negra is a blend of coffees from three of the most admired Brazilian growing regions, Mogiana, Sul de Minas, and the Cerrado. PT's is a quality-oriented specialty wholesale and retail roaster whose motto is "Without the love, it's just coffee." Visit or call 888-678-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A round, sweet, rather exotically nuanced cup that should please coffee romantics.


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.
