About: “Sometimes magic just happens. My absolute favourite coffee of the Brazil Cup of Excellence for 2017 was produced by this legend. I was super excited to meet him as his coffee just absolutely blew my mind. I scored it 96 points... yes 96 points from Brazil, natural process. It was so sweet and juicy, pink and orange fruit, sparkling acidity. From a region in Brazil that is really exciting everyone with its new profile, Araponga... Thank you Brazil, thank you coffee. You continue to surprise and inspire me... Prepare to have your socks blown off... the Brazilians are coming!” - Nolan Hirte
