Our 2nd year of purchasing Emilio's red catuai from Apex Coffee Imports.

A rich and delicious natural process Red Catuai from Sitio Fazendinha, Minas Gerais, Brazil. We find this coffee to be more expressive, funky and perhaps boozy than your typical Brazilian Red Catuai. It leapt off the cupping table and we had to get it on board. It reminds us of chocolate brownie, hazelnut praline (think Ferrero Rocher!) and a light red wine (a pinot noir, perhaps).

It makes for a luxurious and rich filter or a moreish and deep espresso.

Brew method:

We roast this coffee medium and it is best enjoyed as a filter or as an espresso.

For filter, we recommend using a 16:1 water to coffee ratio (for example when using 20 grams of coffee, brew with 320ml of water) and a medium coarse grind.

For espresso, we recommend using a 2.5:1 yield to dose ratio (for example 18 grams of coffee to make a 45 ml espresso), using a fine grind and aiming for a 30 second shot time.
