Can't Complain is one of our main staple coffees, our favourite house espresso for ease of use and consistency, especially delicious in milk. It does well as a low-acid filter option as well, roasted deep into a medium profile, it extracts easily and brings a nice round, sweet cup. We focus on bringing in approachable low-acid coffees for it, that are chocolatey and nutty.
Danilo is our fourth producer we've had in Can't Complain, and we're super excited to be bringing in his coffee. Danilo is a Brazilian farmer who's Family farm goes generations back, He prides himself in the quality of their coffee, being extremely diligent in the processing and quality control work they do.
Cerrado Mineiro is a very desirable area to grow coffee in. Higher altitudes, and lower temperatures allow for the coffee to ripen slower than lower altitude regions, resulting in a sweeter, cleaner coffee. This coffee is grown on 10 hectares of irrigated fields, managed by Danilo and his family.
"A coffee inspired by Nova Scotia’s love for low acid, crushable coffees. Can’t Complain is designed to be the perfect house espresso, or filter coffee if you prefer a more classic cup. This lot from Marcelo has lots of chocolate, rich hazelnut, coconut, and a dried fruit sweetness. We hope this coffee fills you with the nostalgia of diner coffees past, but better."
