The BSCA Espresso Number 1 Blend has a complex flavour with a toasty finish. It contains coffees grown by members of the quality-obsessed Brazil Speciality Coffee Association and is the espresso we use in the cafes. This blend is made with some of the finest naturals, pulped naturals and fully washed coffees produced in the Bahia, Cerrado, Mogiana and Sul de Minas regions of Brazil, carefully mixed to enhance body, aroma and natural sweetness. This is a smooth, velvety, very well balanced coffee with hints of sweet milk chocolate and nuts, sugar browning sweetness and soft acidity. It has always been a hit with those who like slightly “stronger” coffee. The Brazil Specialty Coffee Association (BSCA) was founded in 1991 through the initiative of 12 producers who looked beyond their time, envisioning the commercial opportunities that investing in quality would bring. Brazil is one of the world’s biggest coffee producers but not all coffee is produced to the standards required of BSCA members.
