Brazil Sao Silvestre
Brazil Sao Silvestre Filter
Sao Silvestre is such a useful “tide-us-over” coffee. In anticipation of our Christmas coffee container arriving on Ross, we are topping up our Brazil levels with this familiar “old favourite”. If you are a fan of coffee that looks, tastes and smells of coffee, this is right up your street. Plenty of chocolate and sugarcane sweetness.

Cup potential. Lots of brown sugary sweetness, dark chocolate. This is really easy to drink all round coffee. Great in cafetiere and a coffee that you can drink lots of, easily.
