This is what we call our crowd pleaser. It’s a coffee that’s sure to keep anyone happy. It’s just on the darker side of medium, but far from dark. You get notes of chocolate, nuttiness, very little acidity and zero bitterness.
The diversity of Brazil’s various micro-climates is such that it’s possible to find an incredible array of unique flavor profiles, due both to environmental conditions and processing methods.
“Flor de Ipe” pairs two of Santo Antonio Estates finest coffees, one processed using the pulped-natural method and one using the natural-dry method. These provide for a very dynamic range of flavors in what may be considered a single-origin blend. Orange zest, hazelnut and licorice are prominent in the fragrance and aroma, and flavors of molasses, toffee, raisin, hazelnut, and spice marry to form a subtle complexity best experienced as an espresso coffee. “Flor de Ipe” is the base for our espresso blend, providing a solid foundation which is capable of supporting a wide variety of complimentary blend components.
