Our search was focused on selecting a coffee that caters to those who prefer clean and light flavors, particularly for those who don’t enjoy intense espresso or high acidity filter coffees. It was essential for us to find a coffee that would also complement espresso-based drinks with milk and could be easily calibrated without incurring high costs.
During our Sucafina tasting session, we found “the one!” – the Brazilian Pink Star coffee made it into our selection in two different profiles: as a main espresso and as a filter. We designated it as the main espresso due to its classic espresso flavors, and we also included an alternative espresso roast with a slightly tea-like body and more acidity. As you might have noticed from the price, this coffee is a cooperative coffee, processed as a honey-processed coffee, consisting of various Brazilian Pink Star varieties. On the Sucafina site, you’ll see it listed as “Pulped Natural,” which means it’s a type of natural process with the peel removed, also known as the Honey Process.
The espresso profile of the Brazilian Pink Star features a calming yet delicious filter, offering scents of hazelnut and tobacco and flavors of chocolate, fresh hazelnut, and tobacco notes. As espresso, we wanted to present a coffee with a fuller body, darker notes, and one that pairs well with milk drinks. We loved it, and we hope you will too! 😊
*For our filter profiles, we recommend a gas release period of at least 1.5-2 weeks.
