As Frank Sinatra used to swing it, “They’ve got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil.” But despite the disdain many coffee snobs have for boring old Brazilian beans, a lot a this year’s Cup of Excellence coffee auction netted almost $50/lb for some of Brazil’s finest: Brazil coffee fetches record $US49.75/lb.
Me? I love a good Brazilian base for an espresso blend — made with Cup-of-Excellence-quality stuff. But the Fazenda Santa Ines crop may be a bit over the top for even me… and perhaps even for Sweet Maria’s.
