Brazilian 'El Fumo' | Single Origin
This little one was born during lockdown....We welcome to the club a cheeky little Brazilian number we have named 'El Fumo', taken from the literal translation of 'The Smoke' from it's Brazilian roots.
This is the same Brazilian bean that makes up 50% of out Chilero espresso and is what gives it the smokey hazelnut flavour you all know and love.
It's hard to describe the tasting notes of a coffee, and when you get a nutty, smokey finish, it doesn't quite do it justice, so you're going to have to trust us on this one, it's ace!
This lovely little little bean is delicate in the roaster and needs a slow, low temperature roast to get the best out of it. What comes out the other side is a flavour-filled coffee that works well to both filter and espresso roast to suit all your coffee cravings.

Have had this coffee several times over a couple of year period and it never fails to impress - will definitely buy again
For me this bean makes a great morning coffee (latte or cappuccino) and an Americano for the afternoon
I asked Ian for a recommendation on an Espresso bean that wasn't bitter and - more of a challenge - that was like a bourbon biscuit. El Fumo didn't disappoint! A lovely, flavoursome espresso pick-me-up and nice and mellow for an americano later in the day. Recommended!
I love the Little Fin Coffee. The Brazilian El Fumo is full flavoured without being bitter and is the only coffee either at home or work that I drink. Buy it and try it. If you love coffee then you will love it.
