Brazil - Oberon 2018
StoryCoffee, blending tips and farm information.Brazilian coffees are widely accepted as being some of the most versatile coffees out there. They’ve always been known to be great in blends, but over the last decade, quality has improved by leaps and bounds making them some of the most sought-after single origin coffees.
We present Fazenda Oberon (fazenda means ‘farm’ in Portuguese) as one of our first Inner Core blend options, because it represents a great classic foundation for a blend.
What do we mean by “classic”?
Classic to us means more approachable flavors like almonds, chocolate and caramel--these go a long way in creating a solid base to a well-rounded flavor combination.
More about the farm
Fazenda Oberon is located in the Cerrado region of Brazil, located in the southwestern part of the Minas Gerais State. Known for its stable climate and notably high altitudes the terroir goes a long way to promoting a consistent quality in the final cup.
There are around 3600 coffee producers in the vast land of Minas Gerais making it one of the most important agricultural hubs in the area. The agro-economy in Brazil is no small thing; during the harvest season these producers employ up to 180,000 workers! More
