Why this coffee?
Last year Machina sourced an amazing coffee called La Esperanza, which stood a huge step away form pretty much any other Brazilian coffee they had previously tasted (In a good way!). This lot is a similar style. Not identical by any stretch (as very few coffees ever are), but a stand out all the same. There's only so many coffees you can offer with crazy profiles, and sometimes you want something that is easy, yummy and just an every day quaffable coffee. This is one of those.
Fazenda Freitas is an extremely well processed natural coffee. It's juicy, complex and fun so we bought it to enjoy as a great all round filter. Yes it's a natural with a bit of funk, but it's not one of those freaky profiles that tastes 'not like coffee'.
What's the best way to brew this coffee?
Due to its forgiving nature, it works well in all kinds of espresso machines, whether you have a high end setup such as a Rocket, Marzocco, Expobar (Pro-Sumer) or the likes of a Rancilio Silvia, Gaggia Classic, De'Longhi or Dualit.
Don't have an espresso machine?
This coffee will also work well in a Cafetiere, Clever Dripper or Aeropress, offering you a full bodied full immersion coffee.
