Delicately sweet-savory. Lemon zest, almond, dried apricot, cedar, honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Quietly lively acidity; lightly satiny mouthfeel. The crisply sweet finish consolidates to lemon zest and cedar in the short; honeysuckle resurfaces in the long.
Produced by Jose Maria de Oliveira, producer of the winning coffee in the 2015 Cup of Excellence juried competition for Brazil natural-processed green coffees. “Natural” or dry-processing means the beans or seeds are dried encased in the entire fruit. Naturals form the backbone of the Brazil coffee industry, but this lot reflects a particularly refined approach to the method. This coffee was one of five tied for the third-highest rating in a test of natural-processed Brazil coffees conducted for Coffee Review's May 2016 tasting report. Marcheur Roaster is a Taipei-based boutique roastery. Founders James and Janet have been importing high-quality green coffees into Taiwan for years and founded Marcheur Roastery in 2015 as a further commitment to introducing the world’s finest coffees to consumers.

A stone-fruit- and citrus-framed coffee with subtle floral and nut tones.
