The characteristic cup quality of chocolate with citric acidity is perceived well in espresso turning to roasted hazelnut, full body, and a long chocolate finish.

The farmer is Vicente Ferreira Gonçalves and the farm is called Escalada. The Catuai variety and natural (dry) process produces a quality cup with minimal water usage which is possible due to the extended dry season with moderate temperatures.
