Description About 49th Parallel Coffee - Brazil Sitio Canaa
This light espresso roast from 49th Parallel is a uniquely complex coffee that features more balanced, medium notes but layers them exceptionally well for a deeper sipping experience. Beginning with a smooth vanilla taste that evolves into a sweet-but-not-too-sweet cocoa nib flavor. The finish is rich, bringing to mind molasses. Sourced from João Hamilton’s Sítio Canaã farm just outside of São Paulo, this coffee was produced with an eye for sustainability, quality, and environmental friendliness. 49th Parallel recommends this coffee as an espresso, but we like it as a pour over and drip brew as well!

Recommended Brew Methods
We recommend a 16:1 water to coffee ratio for your dosing. Use a scale for best results! For pour over, use a medium-coarse grind size somewhere between drip and press levels. Start with a short pour to wet the grounds and “bloom” the coffee for 30 seconds, followed by two more pours, divided in half to reach the appropriate remaining ratio of water to coffee.
Start with a 16:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your dosing. You’ll want a medium grind size for drip brewing that’s finer than what you’d use for pourover. Make sure you give the filter basket a shake to evenly distribute the grounds in the filter for best results. Turn on your brewer and it’ll do the rest!
For a French Press brew we recommend a 1:12 coffee to water ratio with coffee ground at the consistency of sea salt. Add your grounds to the brewing chamber. then add twice the water as there are grounds to the chamber. Stir gently and allow to bloom for about 30 seconds. Place the top on the press and allow it to steep for 4 minutes. Plunge the press slowly and enjoy!
Superautos make brewing espresso easy. All you need to do is add beans to the hopper and press a button to pull yourself a shot. If your shot is a bit sour you’ll want to dial the grinder a little bit finer and try again. If it’s bitter, dial it a little coarser. You can find instructions on how to do this for your machine in the manual. Just remember to avoid oily beans that can clog your superauto’s grinder!
