Familia Peixoto

Angel’s Cup delivered a new bag about two weeks ago.  This one is from Familia Peixoto.  From the website, they’re a multi-generational family owned coffee farmer in Brazil.

The first thing that I smelled a strong nutty aroma followed by dark chocolate and then an earthy aroma.  The bag says it tastes like berries and at times I get this wisp of blueberries/cherries as well.

Making my morning latte this morning, the aroma of nuts in the ground coffee is overpowering.  It hits me first followed by the subtle coffee aroma then the cherries.  After adding milk and taking a sip,  the nutty flavor is still there but the cherry undertones has melded with the creaminess of the milk.  The chocolate flavor lingers in the aftertaste.
