ABOUT THIS COFFEE
The Mogiana region, split between the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, is the most renowned of three major Brazilian growing regions. This region has rolling hills and uneven terrain lending to farms that are small to medium in size. This particular lot comes from Cooperativa Regional de Cafeicultores em Guaxupé (Cooxupé), which was established in 1937 and currently has 14,000 active members. Producers typically have farms that average 60 acres in size. Each producer cultivates and harvest their own cherries and places them on patios to dry to 15 percent moisture after which the coffee is moved to mechanical driers to precisely finish the drying to 11 percent moisture. Coffee is carefully stored until it is time for milling and export, which all takes place at the Cooxupé dry mill where traceability and quality control are carefully managed so each producer can be paid according to the quality of their coffee.

I have been drinking Modest for over 2 years now and it has been consistently the best coffee I have ever had. You may change the flavors seasonally but it always is a smooth coffee with a fantastic flavor that never upsets my stomach and it fits any time of day. Morning cup, afternoon, or dinner. You have ruined me for any and all other coffee.

Exactly as described; about as dark of a roast as you can get without hitting the second “crack” / or oily bean stage. Flavor notes hold true. The chocolate and carmel notes just as promised. Little to no acidity; Very smooth. Rare to see a natural process coffee roasted this dark but it Modest nailed it.
If you want a 5 star cup for yourself, Make your own 50/50 blend with one of their lighter roasts such as the Bali or Guatamela Antigua = Pure Nirvana of complexity and roasty comfort.

This is my absolute favorite coffee so far. I definitely got the dried cherry notes, but also a caramel/toffee flavor note. The coffee was so smooth and there was a richness to it too without it being overpowering. If I didn’t have so much coffee I would definitely be ordering more. Too much coffee is a good problem to have.

This coffee is a satisfying change from my usual go-to lighter roasts. I enjoy it with a french press. It’s full-bodied and balanced.
