As part of the esteemed Sertão Coffee group in Carmo de Minas, this coffee comes with a certain pedigree. The half dozen estates that comprise the Sertão group consistently take top honors in Brasilian coffee competitions. Santa Lúcia is no exception. Helcio Carneiro Pinto, along with the help of his neighboring relatives, produces these Yellow Bourbon Varietal coffees at 1100 meters above sea level. The coffee is processed in the pulped natural method and sun dried.
What is Sweet Tooth?
Sweet Tooth, A single origin espresso.
As a roaster that is committed to promoting our producers and bringing them out of anonymity, single origin espresso has always been important to us. What’s more, the best shots of espresso we’ve ever had have been single origin—dynamic, sweet, and complex. They are balanced and complete all by themselves.
Throughout the year, we will be showcasing eight to twelve single producers under the name Sweet Tooth, in homage to our original Sweet Tooth blend, an anti-blend that explicitly showcased the producers whose coffees comprised it. Sweet Tooth will be a rotating single origin on which we’ve put our stamp of approval as a great shot of espresso.
