Valentine to Organic Brazil de Fatima

Carrie Masek

Today’s Valentine is to Organic Brazil de Fatima, Luca’s favorite coffee. Luca not only roasts coffee, he’s the machine whisperer extraordinaire who keep the roasters rolling. He loves his coffee at a medium dark (Vienna) roast level. Roasted to a Vienna, Organic Brazil de Fatima brews into a robust, full-bodied cup, that’s smooth and creamy, with cherry and brown sugar sweetness and luscious caramel sweetness. Luca hails from Brazil and enjoys the Brazilian tradition of taking coffee in the afternoon with a light snack. Even small children drink coffee, usually with a generous dollop of milk.

Luca’s wife draws the line at serving their nine-month old daughter coffee, but she also enjoys a coffee break in the afternoon. Their favorite snack, a cup of Organic Brazil de Fatima and a plateful of banana fritters. Yum!

Here’s our Valentine to Organic Brazil de Fatima:

Beautiful coffee, robust and sweet,

A rich start to the morning, an afternoon treat,

Brazil de Fatima, you're organic it's true,

But your flavor's the reason Luca loves you.
