We have roasted this lot of the yellow bourbon variety into a wonderfully full-bodied espresso. With sweet notes of ripe plums, chocolate fudge and blueberries.
About the Coffee
The beans for our Paraiso II come from Minas Gerais, Brazil's most popular coffee-growing region. Every second coffee cherry grows in this region. This region is especially popular for growing Specialty Coffee because the conditions here are very favorable. High rainfall, volcanic soils and consistent temperatures ensure excellent bean and cup quality.
The coffee bushes for our Paraiso II grow at about 1100m above sea level. Only after about four years they bear the first fruits. These are harvested by hand by experienced pickers. Harvesting machines can rarely be used in steep areas. And if they are, they damage the bushes and the coffee quality by tearing off leaves and branches. In addition, it is difficult for a machine to distinguish between ripe and unripe fruit. Specialty coffee producers therefore rely on manual labor.
After the coffee cherries are harvested, they are sorted and spread on cement patios for the Natural Method. On these, the beans dry in the pulp for 20 days. During this process, they are turned over several times to guarantee uniform quality. After that, the beans are released from the pulp and sent to us in Germany. Here, we gently roasted them in our drum roaster until the flavor profile really convinced us. When fully roasted, Paraiso II tastes of honeydew melon, milk chocolate and almonds.
