Brazil 'Moreninha Formosa' Gourmet Coffee


Moreninha Formosa is named after one of the largest plots of the 3 that make up the farm Fazenda Aurea. These plots are located right outside the cities of Serra de Salitre, Minas Gerais, and Cerrado Mineiro; it is the specific and prime location where this amazing coffee is grown. The coffee trees in this region flourish at 3,900ft; at these elevations, slower growing trees produce more intensely flavored gourmet coffee beans.

After being harvested and processed, Moreninha Formosa coffee is raked and dried on sun bed, allowing hot, dry air to circulate over, under and around the cherries; they dry evenly to produce a full bodied coffee with a touch of earthiness. This Brazilian coffee will surprise your taste buds with a dark chocolate, cherry essence and hints of orange that emerge with our light-medium roast. When brewed, it produces a sweet cup with a gentle hint of nuttiness.
Moreninha Formosa is a varietal of Mondo Nuvo that is naturally processed and exotic coffee. You’ll be surprised with sweet hints of cherry and citrusy oranges combined with dark chocolate, which give this gourmet coffee a lowly-acidic and light body.

I am usually not a fan of South American coffee, but this has to one of the best overall coffees I have ever had. it is quite smooth but very full bodied with hardly any acidity. For me, it is the perfect morning cup.

great Brazilian, with a few caveats

I normally drink a Fazenda São Domingos Brazliian; very rich and smooth, with a smokey chocolate undertone. This one is quite good, but it doesn't have the pronounced cocoa tobacco taste that typifies most dry-processed Brazilians. Try it as an introduction to the Brazilian family of coffees and you won't be disappointed.

Great Low-acid coffee

It had that nutty flavor common to this area of Brazil. I plan to make this my everyday morning brew!

Very upfront taste. You can enjoy the earthiness of the coffee without having to pucker your lips to savor.

Smooth and rich
May 13, 2013
I like my coffee to be bold, full of flavor, yet low in acid. This can be a bit of a challenge. This bag of Morenenha Formosa is rich, and highly aromatic. I was eager to brew a cup when the first scent was released from the bag. Full-bodied, complex coffee flavor and no aching stomach from too much acid. Coffee also held well. I had a cup leftover and reheated it with none of the common nasty oily reheated coffee taste. I'm sure coffee purists are having a fit, but for those of us who still make coffee by the pot, this is good to know!

Best Brazilian we've had in quite a while.
June 21, 2011
There are so many good Brazilian varietals, but this is our favorite in years. Moderation is the key: moderately complex, moderately acidic, moderately aromatic with no off-notes or excess complexity. Good and smooth, and reliably consistent.
Pros:
nice flavor good balance, good body roast neither too light or dark moderately aromatic smooth, fairy mild a superior Brazilian reliable and consistent
Cons:
slightly muddy not as bold as some other S. American coffees
