Blend of 60% Robusta and 40% Arabica coffee beans.
The Brasiliero works great in latte beverages if you like a rather straight coffee flavor without any hints of cocoa, hazelnut, fruits etc. It does not develop the lingering aftertaste of the Manaresi coffees, which is still remarkable in latte beverages, but has a full body in latte beverages.
If you use Brasiliero for straight espresso, we call it intense brutal, a real wake-up call with lots of caffeine without remarkable acidity.
The high percentage of Robusta beans dominates the flavor.
