Bean Review: Irmas Pereira

I got history of coffee tables, celebrities and their coffee tables. It's a natural. This is a story that must be told
Cosmo Kramer (Seinfeld episode “The Cigar Store Indian”)

I remember the first time I tried the Fazenda Irmas Pereira beans was in a blend from Bonanza coffee in Berlin. It was probably my favourite cup of that trip so I took the time to look for a local option here in the UK.

Coffee Time
This Brazilian single origin is harvested in one of the country most recognised growing areas the Mantiqueira hills. The farm is producing high quality beans since the 70s. The beans came in a medium roast from Rave Coffee Roasters.

Irmas Pereira / Single Origin Brazil
Varietals: Bourbon, Catuai and Catucai
Score: 3.5/5

Really nice coffee, especially for espresso drinks with milk such as flat white or cappuccino. The extraction does not create a massive crema but well enough for an espresso. The extra sweetness of the foamed milk goes great with the chocolate notes from the beans. A notch of acidity and there is a nice aftertaste that is quite subtle.

The beans were grinded with a Rancilio Rocky grinder and the extraction made with a Rancilio Silvia
