This natural processed coffee is a blend of coffee from 12 coffee producers in the Cerrado region, Brazil. The farmers harvest ripe cherries, and cherries left on the tree to dry called raisin cherries. The cherries are then sorted by weight at the washing stations before being allowed to sundry for as long as possible. The coffee is dried using mechanical driers to ensure even drying. Mechanical drying reduces the loss of coffee due to defects such as mold and rot. After the drying is complete, the coffee is left to homogenize in wooden boxes for 30 days before it is hulled and the parchment is removed from the beans.
The technological advancements used by farmers in Brazil’s Cerrado region allow farmers to cultivate more coffee with less physical manpower. This brings the cost down allowing us to offer a high-quality coffee for less. This Brazilian bean works best as a medium to medium-dark roast. The roast really accentuates the chocolate notes and allows the natural sweetness to shine. The lighter the roast gets you notice more of the sweet notes which are very subtle hints of raisin and caramel. Our dark roast Brazil Cerrado is one of our favorites for Cold brew. We like to use the darker roasts on our espresso machine to make very rich and chocolatey lattes.
Choose your roast!
Light Roast is great for pour-over or drip if you enjoy more of the sweetness and subtle acidity a natural process coffee presents.
Our medium roast brings more of the peanut butter and chocolate forward and is extremely versatile for cold-brewed or hot brewed coffee drinks.
the darkest roast we offer of this origin has developed more of the rich chocolate flavors. It’s perfect for anyone who enjoys a dark roast coffee as well as someone who enjoys a medium roast.
Pick your Brazil Cerrado grind
If you have a coffee grinder at home we suggest you choose the whole bean option. To read more about whole bean or pre-ground coffee click here.
Our Northside Coffee pour over grind is best for anyone who enjoys manual brew methods. We choose a more fine grind to ensure the best extraction using any pour-over method.
If you have an automated drip machine, choose the drip grind option. We set this grind to produce a high-quality cup of coffee on all automatic coffee brewers.
The cold-brew grind option is our most coarse grind. Since the cold brew extraction method takes a longer time, the large grind allows for more surface area and balanced extraction.
Our Northside Coffee espresso grind is dialed in for our machine at our cafe downtown. It might not be as compatible with every espresso machine so we recommend for most espresso drinkers to grind it themselves. We know that may not be an option for everyone so we will provide a fine grind for your convenience.
We hope you enjoy your coffee and appreciate your feedback.
