The Brazil Fazenda Ambiental Fortalleza was carefully roasted for you by 1000 Faces Coffee. This coffee was sourced from the coffee growing region of Caconde, Sao Paolo in Brazil at an altitude of 1,200 - 1,300 meters. This is a great example of how delicious a well harvested and processed a pulped natural coffee can be. This cup is fantastically rich, with notes of milk chocolate, peanut butter and dried fruits.
While I enjoy the nutty flavors, the roast was a bit too light for me to fully enjoy.
The taste peanut butter was stronger than I thought it would be, and was hoping it would be more subtle. Overall, the coffee had nice flavors, but the taste of coffee itself was not strong enough for me (tasted a bit like a "dessert" coffee to me). I love just a good quality, well brewed cup of coffee that has a strong but smooth coffee taste, and where any other flavors/notes are very subtle.
I am not a big fan of coffees that's are overly sweet coffees (e.g. my daily coffee is just a simple Café au Lait made from a good coffee, only a little bit of steamed milk, and no added sweeteners/flavors).
A tremendous nutty aroma confronted me from the moment I opened the package. The flavor profile is actually more sweet, I tasted a hint of orange. The coffee is creamy and has a bright acidity. I really wanted to rate this coffee four stars, but the flavor didn't match the nutty aroma.
My stars are off now. This gets 6.
Was unsure at first but after a few brews, grew to really enjoy this one. Peanut butter comes in as it settles and cools a bit, and chocolate throughout. It's really enjoyable.

one of my favorites!
I love this coffee. I like the richness of the cup, and definitely caught the peanut butter at the end. Sent a bag to a friend, and he enjoyed as well.
Smooth and balanced. Chocolate and peanut butter notes in the front giving away to a slight malty sweetness. Giving 3 start because of the thin mouthfeel.
nutty with notes of honey. Seriously one of our favorites to date. If you prefer bolder morning coffee, this is a great choice.
Notes of peanut butter and chocolate
This was exactly what I've wanted!
Wonderful body, great tasting notes. The fruits came out in the v60 very well.
Great aroma, and very smooth. Really nice as a v60, I used about 23g to 360g
Really chocolate forward. Didn't get any of the citrus or complexity. Not my favorite
I really liked this coffee, but preferred the first coffee slightly more. This one had a good flavor but was lighter/slightly more acidic/less chocolate-y (not sure the right word). I definitely enjoyed it though and it had a rich aftertaste that was particularly good.
I liked Brazil Fazenda Ambiental Fortalleza quite a lot, it's balanced and smooth and delightful. I think I may have liked the Peru Huabal slightly more.
Delicious!. Bought more.
Definitely getting the notes of chocolate, but not so much the fruit.
wow, so much peanut butter. really interesting and delicious. more please!
Awesome peanut butter and chocolate notes. Nuanced and balanced. Excellent in French press and espresso.
Still hard to grind. My wife thinks it smells like butt and I tend to agree. Can you find a coffee for me that is easier to grind and smells less butty.
Smooth and lively. Milk chocolate with hints of fruit acidity and a deep sweetness.
these have all been so good
I don't remember this coffee very well. I do recall that it was not my go to...took me a long time to finish the bag.
well balanced--rich supple body complements the well structured citrus notes.
nice flavor. .... good with milk
I loved the rich flavor of this coffee!
I think this may be one of the best yet.
First bag from the premiere level subscription and the small additional cost is well worth it. As stated above, makes a fruity cup, but the flavors aren't muddled. Rather each tasted note builds on the previous one, all with a roasty finish to complete a staggeringly good brew. The best recommendation I can give is that these beans inspire me to be more precise in my brewing methods, in order to tease even more quality out of each cup.
This coffee was ok, but there was a smokiness about it that we didn't really like.
Not a fan of this, I think it was over roasted. No complexity, no finish, and it oxidized very quickly, leaving a listless cup after 7 days.
Smooth brew, well balanced. Mild yet layered flavor. Enjoyable, but not necessarily memorable.
Rrally liked this one. It actually gave me hints of peanut butter haha
Not as good as the Ethiopian one
Nutty with chocolate and a hint of fruit. Fantastic roast! Chemex brewed.
Too much in the fruit direction that I said from the outset I didn't want.
Not as a big a fan of this one. It did not have complex flavors of the last one I was sent. Had a bit too much sour taste for me.
This coffee is great! It strikes a great balance of dark richness, with just a hint of fruitiness. It works great in both an aeropress and chemex. The flavor is slightly milder so that it would pair well with added flavor or flavored creamer. This coffee doesn't quite match up to some of our all-time favorites, but it's definitely in the top tier.
it was okay.
Love the chocolate and delicate fruity finish. Some earthy goodness on this one.
Pretty dang bold and chocolatey... Not an overwhelming acidity either. Loved it brewed on a kalita!
Really good - smooth blend. Light fruit flavor. Great for pour overs.
One of my favorites
Still trying it; initially the flavor was great. Rustic. Unlike the last batch, the flavor changed a bit when it cooled down. Less acidic than the previous batch. I like it.
Bit muted, but taste is pretty good
Hi there, I have to say I was kind of disappointed in this coffee. It was still very light roast and without the nice acidity of the previous coffee you sent. so for next batch please a darker roast at least the medium to medium dark with some mild acidity thank you !
I love the complexity and roast of this blend.
Good breakfast coffee
This is one of the smoothest coffees I've ever had. It was especially nice in the Aeropress! While smooth, it wasn't lacking in flavor.
Delicious. This amazing Brazil coffee tasted like chocolate covered fruit. One of the best Brazil's I've brewed in a long time.
Another really good coffee - not quite as tasty as the Peru Cenfrocafe, but a really rich lighter roast.
Big fan of this coffee! Loved how it tasted in my V60.
Great tasting and smooth.
smooth, almost caramel-like sweetness
Solid cup, heavier on chocolate and did not get much fruit.
I loved the floral nose and the fruity flavor. Great.
Balanced, stellar cup of coffee. Great chocolate notes with a hint of sweetness.
Good, very smooth coffee. I would like to try a little more flavor profile though.
I really like this coffee! It is a very balanced cup. The more I drink it, the more I like it :)
Tasty -- best as pour over
Excellent at the first taste
Ryan and Rachel
very nice smooth coffee very nice to drink.
Nice full body, with notes of blueberries and dark cocoa.
I have had about nine cups of this by now and I feel more confident about my opinion. Right off the bat I noticed it wasn't as strong as the last one. When I poured it out it isn't as dark and the intense bitter flavor isn't there. Once I figured out I wasn't making it wrong I settled in to enjoy it. I don't need a super sweet something to eat with it to kind of tame the after taste in my mouth. I don't feel jittery after drinking it but I'm alert in the mornings. It's a nice cup of coffee to linger with in the morning.
This coffee is smooth and mellow, and expands the flavor palate, which is great. The flavor notes say chocolate and peanut butter, and I can see why. Very nice.
I loved this coffee! This is such a nicely balanced cup compared to some of the acid bombs I have had from Kenya. The bean aroma reminds me of reeses peanut butter cups. The cup is very fruity with balanced sweetness and a mouth feel that reminds me of chocolate milk. After taste is pleasant but doesn't linger.
I really enjoyed brewing this cup daily. I found it very smooth and mellow, and really liked the nutty flavor of this coffee!
This is quite nice. Although my other half would like it to be bolder, he did agree that it was a nice flavor.
This one is very nutty, which I really don't like. While I know that it isn't an actual problem for the allergy, because I have a nut allergy I don't like things that taste overly nutty. If you like nutty coffee then you'll love it.
I'm not crazy about Brazilian beans, and this not an exception. Flavors are present, but muted.
Pretty good cup of coffee, has a really strong chocolate nutty taste.
Super nutty! Unfortunately, not for me.
This is a really great coffee. Very deep and full of great flavor. Did not feel acidic at all. A coffee you can enjoy plain and natural. This would probably also make a really tasty cold brew.
Nice caramel flavor.
Not a huge fan of straight Brazil, prefer to have it in a blend where they tend to play well with other coffees. That being said I enjoyed this coffee and trying to find just the right brew method to make it shine. Japanese iced was refreshing and it aero press seem to work pretty well too. Very nutty and some dark chocolate and almost peanut butter like finish.
Three stars might not be fair, because I never got a chance to properly dial this coffee in like I usually do...it mostly got used for morning coffee at work.
Very good dark yummy
Great as espresso
a little to earthy
light body, subtle chocolate notes. Mild-med acidity at finish. Best via pour over
Not a bad coffee, I'm not much of a peanut fan, and this coffee is through and through "nutish"... that being said I loved that it was so different from most coffees... if you like peanut butter you should def give this a try.
This one was better, with some of the fruity notes, but I'd like to continue to move towards the light fruit/tea/bright vibes as opposed to the chocolate/citrus/tart notes.
It's interesting. Good taste overall, but there's a cardboard taste I just can't get rid of. Maybe that's just the taste of Brazil coffee? In the past I've associated that taste with underdeveloped roasts, but based on 1000 Faces reputation, I'm guessing that's not the case. Either way, it's an interesting coffee - this is fun! :)
I like it quite a bit, but compared to the other coffees I've gotten recently it's a little more earthy than I prefer.
