Very nice beans, great service

Market Lane is a well-respected Melbourne roaster that a lot of us would be aware of. Still, this is the first time I've tried one of their Brazilian single origins - while Brazil is a huge coffee producer, they sometimes have the unfortunate reputation of producing smooth, inoffensive but ultimately uninteresting coffee (depending on your taste).

Marimbus, though, is a step above. It does hold the characteristics of Brazilian growing generally - it is smooth and sweet, with a gentle caramel/almond praline profile and a medium body - but the care that has been taken in both the production of the beans and their roasting is obvious. For a smooth coffee it holds up impressively well with milk and produces a surprisingly tasty latte or flat white. It's also very forgiving when producing espresso - it took me a few shots to dial in my grind, but with this bean it's very hard to make a bad coffee. Sure, you can still stuff it up - but even if your dose or grind isn't perfect you'll still be producing something extremely drinkable.

Also, customer service from Direct Coffee is excellent - great communication, fast shipping - everything you're looking for in an online shop.

Very personal customer service

The delivery was super quick! We missed our delivery the first time because we weren't home but Tim made sure we received our coffee beans with very prompt communication. Excellent customer service and the beans were beautifully packed. Can't wait to try them!

Tasting notes: 
Dark chocolate and walnut with a soft orange finish.

The delicious Marimbus is a long-time favourite at Market Lane. Toshi, our Brazil coffee buyer and Director of QC, describes it as a “beautifully well-balanced and easy drinking coffee that tastes great black and with milk”.

Fazenda Progresso is owned by the Borré family and run by third-generation farmer Fabiano Borré (pictured). “Fabiano is very smart and decisive,” says Toshi. “He cares deeply about coffee. He and [Progresso’s head cupper] Ednaldo do a lot of research, and their coffee quality improves every year.”

The Borré family’s motto is ‘Mindful Coffee’. This describes their commitment to acting mindfully and ensuring that their core values – excellence, innovation, environmental and social responsibility – inform the way they do business and the decisions they make.

We’ve been working with Fabiano and Progresso since 2015. We look forward to sharing their coffees for many years to come!
