Description


producer

This selection comes from a farm called Santa Catarina, a 70-acre estate (of which only 12 acres are planted with coffee) owned and managed by Sebastião Alexandre da Silva, located near Pedralva, a little to the southwest of the town of Carmo de Minas. Da Silva delivers his coffee cherries to the nearby Pedra Branca mill, where the ripe fruit is processed under the experienced care of workers.

Carmo de Minas and Pedralva are located in the Serra da Mantiqueira mountain range, whose peaks stretch from São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro. The slopes that lie within the borders of the state of Minas Gerais, a vast granary, are known as the "Mantiqueira de Minas" Indication of Origin. The region is the epicenter of some of Brazil's most exceptional coffees and award-winning coffee farms.

process

This coffee has been washed and floated to remove damaged and less dense beans, then sealed in airtight casks to macerate for 24 hours before the drying process begins. After a day's express maceration, the cherry noyayx are gently dried on raised beds to reduce the moisture content to 11%, then carefully stored until export.

profile

Offering a nostalgic experience with its lush decadence, texture and familiar sweet flavors. Its citric acidity adds a surprising element on the palate. It's sure to remind you of the orange ice creams of sweet childhood. Buttery and velvety on the palate and clean on the finish, Santa Catarina de Minas Gerais offers subtle reminders of its Brazilian origins. This exotic cascade features sweet, crisp notes of marzapán, the delicacy of white tea and freshness with hints of rosemary and fresh basil.
