Flavour Category
nuts & spice nuts & spice
High quality coffee has wide ranging, naturally occurring taste notes. The dominant flavour profile in this coffee is Nuts & Spice which typically shows the aroma of sweet spices such as cloves, cinnamon and allspice. Flavours of toasted almonds and macadamia. And is often typical of Brazil coffees and the Bourbon variety.
Roast
This coffee is a light roast. Roast level influences the flavour and body of coffee. Darker roasts are fuller bodied, lighter roasts brighter. The beans are light brown in colour (unsurprisingly), it will retain more of the natural flavour of the coffee. This can result in a higher acidity and may often show more fruit and floral notes. This roast style means the quality of the coffee shines through the best.

Bobolink

Brazil

Bobolink’s story starts with the success of Silvia Barreto and Marcos Croce who run the famous, organic farm Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza (FAF) in the region of Mococoa near the southern border of Sul de Minas.

The bountiful knowledge and expertise of Silvia and Marcos which attributed to the success of FAF has not been kept a secret, but openly shared amongst coffee farmers in the region.

What has formed from this shared knowledge is a network of producers who have ventured into the growing exquisite coffees through the same sustainable practices as FAF. This is Bobolink coffee.

One step in the organic farming process is planting indigenous trees among the coffee to create shade. The trees do not only provide shade but also create new homes for wildlife - namely the New World Blackbird, also known as the ‘Bob-o-link’ Bird.
