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 www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: A round, sweet, rather exotically nuanced cup that should please coffee romantics.
