This Brazil single origin hits all the notes. It’s packed with flavor. It has a subtle sweet taste with a slightly floral smell that’s gentle and not overwhelming. It’s notes of caramel and peanut butter along with a slightly more earthy flavor that you just can't pinpoint make this a very well rounded coffee. It's light flavors blossom the best when drank plain or black. We recommend brewing this coffee with a pour over or a Chemex. We don’t judge though, experiment and see how you like it best!

Cocarive is a coffee growing cooperative founded in 1961 that currently has its operations and processing mill located in centrally in Carmo de Minas located centrally in rural Brazil in the largest coffee producing region in the world minas Gerais.
Most of the 661 members are small landholders with less
