This Brazilian Bourbon Santos has a light to medium body, yields a low acidity, and has a very pleasant aroma. The Bourbon coffee plant varietal (Coffea arabica var. bourbon) tends to produce coffees that are fruiter and brighter (more acidic) than other Brazil coffees.
The low acidity of Brazilian Bourbon Santos derives from the region’s lower growing elevations compared to areas such as Central America where higher elevation plantations (e.g. 5,000 feet above sea level) produce premium gourmet coffees that are brighter (higher acidity).
