A dark chocolate and roasted nuts treat by Portland’s incredible Coava.
Coava sourced this delightfully rich coffee from the tiny region of Aroponga in Minas Gerais, where significant investment has been made to improve the cultivation standards. It went through Brazil’s signature pulped natural method: the skin of coffee cherries was peeled off before drying, resulting in the sweet, full body of a traditional natural process with the acidity and brightness of a washed process. We tasted roasted nuts, dark chocolate, with a red apple acidity and a smooth tea-like body.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn’t want to do it. For exclusive weekly coffee suggestions from our panel, join Fellow Drops!
