Like many natural processed Brazilian coffee, low and slow is our preferred approach with Luzia. The coffee tastes best when sweetness and body are accentuated by a longer roast with higher end temperatures. We find a solid medium roast to be the perfect fit for this coffee, although we have been enjoying it’s clean and sweet aftertaste on light cupping roasts. Excellent for espresso or adding into blends.

I'm a recent first-time purchaser from Hacea after seeing the clearly well-deserved support from Black City Coffee Roaster.
I picked up a few items, including this coffee. If there were a platonic form for coffee, it would be this one.
I'm completely blown away. It's deep, complex, and undoubtedly chocolatey. It actually matches the description listed on the site (whoever does the tasting is right on). I also picked up some peach when the brew had cooled significantly.
Thank you for the experience,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Jordan!
Glad you are enjoying this coffee from Brazil and that our tasting notes are lining up for you. I have not caught a peach note in this coffee before, but I will certainly keep an eye out for it during our next tasting.

Bold and delicious
Roasted this one Dark. Result was a smooth bold cup with rich chocolate and hazelnut notes. Tastes great as a cold brew as well as espresso.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback! Glad this coffee is working well for you. We also love those sweet and nutty notes in cold brew and espresso blends.
This coffee is serving us great as a nice medium dark classic profile. And it’s wonderful for cold brew! I’m getting a light first crack on a slow roast, making great rich deep flavors.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Josh! Glad you are pulling that deep sweetness out of this coffee.
