Brazil - João Batista Carbonic Maceration

Preparation – Carbonic maceration natural
LocationCarmo do Paranaiba / Minas Gerais
Altitude – 1100 masl
Importer - Horsham Coffee Roaster

Brazil produces a range of fantastic coffees but is probably best known for coffees that showcase lower acidity, good body and chocolate/nutty notes. This coffee is really something quite different and demonstrates the incredible effect post harvest processing can have on the final product. This is definitely a coffee experience not to be missed!

Farm Overview:

Joao Batista owns a farm called Lagoa dos Estulanos located in the municipality Carmo do Paranaiba at an altitude of 1100masl. He focuses on producing a wide range of different coffees including some experimental process micro-lots. This particular region is known for producing fantastic coffees and benefits from well-defined seasons. You can see the location of the farm by clicking on the google maps link. 

Harvesting and Processing:

The coffee was harvested from red Catuai trees and carefully sorted before processing. The coffee was first washed and then fermented for 24 hours in sealed containers. After fermentation the coffee was dried on concrete patios as a natural.

Tasting Notes: 

This is an example of a very different coffee from Brazil. The combination of fantastic soil, varietal and careful post harvest processing has created a rich, juicy, fruity coffee. Tasting notes include port wine, red grade and sweet brown sugar/caramel.


This coffee works well for all brew methods. 

Filter: Dose 15g, water 250g. 

Espresso: Dose 18 gram to 40 gram yield over about 30 seconds. 

This coffee is available as whole bean and pre-ground but we recommend always grinding fresh before brewing. We sell a range of grinders if you would like to grind this coffee fresh at home.

    Winey, Fruity, Excellent Black and with Milk - Going to grab more before it sells out

    Wow. Bought this coffee in my first order from Horsham CR.
    Excellent Customer Service too - responded brilliantly to my enquiry on ordering.
    Can pay by PayPal too, which is a bonus for me.
    Port Wine, Red Grapes with a hint of Chocolate (as one might expect from Brazil).
    Naturals are my favourite & I love trying Experimentals.
    This is up there with the very best.
    Hope I can grab more, before people read this review & buy it all up.
    Just ordered two more bags of this excellent coffee (before it sells out), which are now on their way; so, looking forward to weeks of sublime enjoyment. Tempted to try a Cold Brew with these beans too; will let you know.

    refreshing twist

    unexpectedly pleasant roast with beautiful sweet winey notes. The Brazilian caramel depth makes it a proper celebration cup. used in aeropress.

    Brazil - Fazenda Paraiso

    Very nice through from expresso to large morning coffee.

    Flat white

    Great coffee as a flat white. Fruity/strawberry like notes you would expect from fermented preparations. Great tasting coffee, one of my faves
