Pour Over – 16 grams of coffee to 230 grams of water at 200 F. (We like the Hario V60 or the Brewista Tornado.)
French Press – 1 gram of coffee to 19 grams of water at 200 F. Add coffee and hot water to the French Press, stir and let sit covered for 4 ½ – 5 minutes. Press and serve.
Back Story – We fell in love with this coffee at first roast. Its fruity nuances, paired with its natural sweetness and clean aftertaste, led us to choose this as our light roast coffee. Bossa Nova is a blend from the regions of Cerrado Mineiro (known for sweetness), Alta Mogiana (known for notes of chocolate and caramel) and Sul de Minas (known for bright, fruity flavors).

Back Story – After months of searching and tasting, Ipanema was the first coffee we selected. After various roasts, we knew we’d found something special. Its natural sweetness, hints of chocolate and smooth aftertaste make it a favorite for many of our coffee drinkers. Ipanema is a carefully selected blend of beans from the region of Cerrado Mineiro and has a consistent taste from season to season.
Espresso/ Coffee Maker
For dark roast and espresso lovers. Samba is a single origin bean that brings a rich, bold flavor, yet still smooth. It brews well as an espresso but is also versatile.
Expresso – Follow instructions on machine for single or double.
Coffee Maker – We recommend initially making it like you would any other coffee, then increase or decrease the amount of Samba to find the strength that best suits your taste. 1 gram of coffee to 16 grams of water (or 2 large tablespoons per cup).
Back Story – This single origin bean has an incredible taste whether roasted light or dark. We chose it to be our dark roast because of its characteristic of being both rich and smooth. It’s hard to drink just one Samba espresso. Samba is grown in the region of Cerrado Mineiro (known for sweetness).
