About this coffee :

Lourdes Fatima is the matriarch of a coffee growing family that includes her two sons and daughter-in-law. Tiago lives and works on the farm with her, and just across the road her son Carlos and his wife Rosmeirie live on their farm, Sitio Vargem Grande. The younger generation is very interested in fermentation and has been training and experimenting to add value to their coffee.

Mechanical and manual picking methods are used, depending on the harvest and ripening of the cherries. In cases where they want to increase the cup quality or to create a special lot they will use selective picking.

The coffees here are processed as Natural coffees, which means the whole cherries are dried. Normally this process gives you the perception of a sweeter coffee, this is because through fermentation microbes create compounds called esters that are absorbed by the seed. These esters survive the roasting process and are precursors to aromas that are created in the caramelization process of roasting, this makes the coffee seem sweeter.

For this lot Lourdes & Thiago have allowed the cherry to ferment for 72 hours before being dried in the drying box. This coffee has great flavours reminiscent of Christmas like mulled wine and cardamom finish. With great vibrancy of boozy winey finish. Definitely not your typical Brazilian coffee!
