With similar lineage to our popular Familia Peixoto (natural process), this coffee was produced using the pulped natural (honey process) for the first time on the Peixoto family farm.
Picked late into the harvest when the cherries were at an extremely high sugar content, floated in a washing system to remove any overly ripe cherries, and passed through a depulper to gently remove the cherry skin, this coffee was then sun-dried. The combination of the honey process and this year’s unusually cold harvest season resulted in a slower rate of fermentation and the development of more delicate flavor notes.
In the cup, this coffee has a vibrant and exceptionally clean flavor profile with the same great sweetness that we have come to love from our family coffees.

This Recipe offers a lot of clarity and separation of flavor which highlights the things we love in the Peixoto Honey. Notes of sweet orange and milk chocolate in the hot cup give you a glimpse of what is to come. Cooling with flavors of orange, crisp apple, white grape and a sweetness of raw sugar, the flavors come together in a beautiful harmony, all coming together without over taking each other.

This is our classic espresso recipe for the Peixoto Honey. It yields a juicy bodied shot with soft notes of granny smith apple, and white grape. This is held together with the structure of the sweetness, which reminds of raw sugar and milk chocolate, these flavors come into play and allow for the bright acidity of the apple and grape to balance out, reminding of caramelized apple or grape preserves. We love this coffee on espresso because it has the complexities we love without being overwhelming, it is also a very surprising flavor profile for Brazil and it is a gateway to show the kind of quality the country can offer.
