A note from the curator is printed behind the box’s cover! I like this format — you get a little info about the origin of the coffee and what flavors to look for in your cup, but it is still simple, and you aren’t bombarded with cards, stickers, or promotions.
Smooth Operator – Brazil Cocarive Cooperative ($20) This natural pulped coffee beans from Thou Mayest was grown by the Cocarive Cooperative in the Carmo de Minas region of Brazil at 1,200 meters above sea level.
It is the perfect coffee for someone who’s looking for something mellow and easy to drink, since it has comforting notes of caramel and subtle spices.
Printed at the back of the package is the bean’s roasting date. They always make sure that your coffee is fresh from the roaster!
The beans are fresh and roasted just perfectly. I have a great burr grinder that I like to use with my preferred settings, but the whole beans are up for any grinding method and preparation.
Here’s a closer look at the coffee beans. They have a very even roast, lovely color, and very few imperfections.
The ground beans brewed well in my Aeropress, producingg a dark and flavorful cup of Joe.
This coffee makes a superb morning cup. It isn’t overly bold, and it skips the dark mocha tones in favor of a silky body and subtle caramel notes. It had a good deal of complexity, with some hints of nutmeg and herb, but it was mellow with a true-to-the-bean flavor that light-roast enthusiasts would appreciate. A great everyday selection.
