Roast Profile (1-5): 3
The estate is a total 2400 ha with just 1100 planted with the varietals Yellow Catuai, Red Catuai,Topázio, Arara, Rubi and Mundo Novo. The farm has a strong ethos for environmental and social production working as harmoniously as possible with the land and providing a beneficial working environment for the farm employees. They spent 4 years researching new drying technologies before finally choosing a style of static box that allows them to dry the coffee in a controlled and slow way. The coffee is mechanically harvested and then the cherry separated (green, cherry and dry). This lot was then taken to the patio drying for 19 days (sun dried). This longer time allows the coffee to continue fermenting whilst on the patio giving the more prominent fruit flavours in the cup. After drying down to 11%, the coffee is rested for 10 days before hulling and storing the coffee.
