James Gourmet Coffee Review: Brazil Morada Da Prata

James Gourmet Coffee offers a plethora of specialty coffee beans from a wide range of origins. Their Brazil Morada Da Prata is a unique bean that combines traditional Latin flavours with crisp acidity and bite. 

James is a small but very impressive coffee roastery located in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire. 

If you are looking for a sweet and sour espresso bean with a traditional chocolate undertone, Brazil Morada is a great option to try. 

What is Brazil Morada Da Prata?

Brazil Morada De Prata offers a unique combination of flavours, striking a balance between traditional Brazilian chocolatiness and a hint of citrus acidity. 

The description of Brazil Morada Da Prata reads “I was surprised by how sweet the acidity is”. This is because Brazilian coffees tend to have relatively low acidity, medium body and offer flavours such as chocolate, caramel and nuts – Coffee Blenders, September 2021, “The Clear Flavor Profile of Brazilian Coffee Beans & What to Pair With Them”. 

This unique coffee is naturally processed and comes from Alta Mogiana, Sul de Minas, Brazil. Perhaps the processing plays into the unique flavour…

According to James, Morada Da Prata is a 5th Generation farm that was established in the 1800s. Its founder, “Henry Dumont became known as The King of Coffee, with 5 Million coffee plants” to his name. 

With a long history of making high quality coffee and shipping it all over the world, it’s fair to say that you’re in safe hands with the Morada Da Prata coffee farm. 

Who Should Buy Brazil Morada Da Prata

Brail Morada da Prata is aimed at coffee lovers that want a citrus twang infused into their traditional Brazilian coffee. The acidic lime cuts through the rich, creamy dark chocolate that lingers in the mouth from start to finish. 

If you like to brew your coffee with either a home espresso machine or through a filter, this is a great coffee to try. The citrus really pops when using a V60 as opposed to espresso, where it is a little more muted. 

By buying from James Gourmet Coffee, you’re also supporting passionate and extremely knowledgeable coffee professionals, enabling them to keep bringing amazing coffee to UK cafes! 

How Does it Taste?

Since Brazilian coffee tends to have a distinctive sweet, nutty flavour profile, the fact that Morada Da Prata has citrus undertones is a bit surprising. 

However, it delivers a resounding freshness to an otherwise traditional (but still delicious) Brazilian brew. Slightly sour lime and crisp sweet apple are the fruits on display here. They tend to shine through more as the coffee cools slightly, which I can definitely attest to. 

Whilst Brazil Morada da Prata does pair well with milk, I’d recommend giving it a try black and experiencing those crisp fruity tasting notes as they pair with the rich underlying nuttiness and chocolate. 

In terms of body and mouthfeel, Morada da Prata isn’t too heavy. It is described as a medium body and I would agree with that. It’s easy to drink and makes you ponder as it lingers on the tongue.
