Love this coffee. Roast to a Medium for family, the lighter the roast the more the caffeine and Brazil IPE do not disappoint on that. For my own blend that I call Latin Lite Espresso is a most, great flavor, perfect espresso blend, run right after the second crack.. I also use the Ipe to give the touch on my new blend Wild Trio, this has nice and strong flavors with a bright acidity and floral citrus finish.
Roasted 15lbs for a coffee stout beer. Found that it was quite nutty around the 403° mark and entered a nice milk chocolate around 417° Where the nuts and chocolate merged. Could probably get more dark choco out of it a bit hotter. Not as complex as some Brazils I’ve used before but certainly a good bean to blend with.
I took advantage of a well priced green coffee. I roast to double crack, found the roasting very fulfilling. I enjoy a morning pour over. I would repeat this purchase !
Brazil Ipe Natural - Green
I like this for a typical daily cup. It has good flavor roasted city+. It is an excellent bean for the price point.
