Fazenda Sao Domingos
|Sul de Minas growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil
Bright and crisp but delicately sweet. An unusual but quite appealing combination of chocolate and grapefruit tones makes its invigorating, seductive presence felt from nose to finish.
As a green coffee, a 2001 Brazil Cup of Excellence competition winner. This coffee, from the classic Brazilian growing region of south Minas Gerais, is a pulped natural or semi-dry-processed coffee, meaning the skin was removed from the fruit but the fruit pulp was allowed to remain clinging to the beans during drying. The pulped natural method generally produces a low-key but gently bright, often fruity cup. Diedrich Coffee is a publicly traded, quality-oriented specialty chain headquartered in California that benefits from the coffee leadership of Martin Diedrich, a third-generation member of a family of coffee growers and roasters.

Who Should Drink It
Rich dessert eaters. This subtle, tart-but-sweet, refreshing coffee should nicely balance full-bore pastries and desserts.
