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.
