Brazil Natural 17/18 NY 2/3 SSFC

Brazil is a well-known coffee producing giant. They source around one-third of the world's coffee, making them the largest coffee producer in the globe! Of course, most of this is lower grade Arabica. However, this country is capable of producing specialty coffees.

This particular type is a standard specialty quality coffee. It is dry-processed, meaning the beans are patio-dried while they are still in the cherry. Since the coffees are dried in contact with the sweet mucilage, the coffee's cup profile will be heavy in body, sweet, smooth, and complex.

Ethiopia Djimmah

Ethiopia is famed for the unique flavours of its coffee, and it's unusually distinct and elegant floral, herbal and citrus notes. Despite being the claimed birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia is now the 5th largest producer of coffee in the world, and it holds 5% of the world's market.

Coffees producers in this region are mainly smallholders, but they produce a large proportion of Ethiopia's coffee (around 50%). Coffee from this area is normally exported as "Limu" if washed, and "Djimmah" if naturally processed. They are typically milder than coffees from Sidamo.

Vietnam WP Grade 1 Scr 18

Vietnam has a right to be proud of its rank when it is the world's top producer and exporter of robusta coffee, accounting for around 70 percent of the total robusta volume purchased worldwide. Thanks to its affordable cost and frequently available sources, Vietnamese robusta coffee has played an extremely important role in the supply chain for many large coffee roasters like Nestlé.

Screen 18 is the largest screen size available in Vietnam coffee meaning larger beans which is linked to higher quality. G1 (Grade 1) signifies the best quality coffee with very few defects. The wet polished process unique to Vietnam gives a cleaner cup than other naturally processed Robusta coffees.
