Pact Irmas Pereira

Coffee Review

3.0 stars

One thing I like about Pact is that their coffees always have a single-sentence summary on the packet; it’s obviously not a perfect description, but it sets your expectations quite nicely. Of course, the down side is that when you come to write a review, you have to try and ignore those expectations!

pact-irmas-pereira-1Irmas Pereira is described as “chocolate chip cookie”, which sounds like my cup of coffee. The name comes from the Brazilian farm where the beans are grown and I find it strangely pleasing to read that the farm and I equally ancient, having been founded (well, born in my case!) in 1971.

The grounds are medium roasted, with a gentle lime citrus aroma blending nicely with milk chocolate and perhaps a hint of digestive biscuit – although that may be the power of suggestion.

Brewed, the fruit acidity becomes softer – more green apple than lime – but the chocolate remains in the background.

In the mouth it’s quite light; soft and creamy with just a gentle tannic acidity in the finish. It’s not as rich as normally go for, but it’s very pleasant regardless – 3 stars.
