This coffee from Sitio Capoeria is a natural processed Brazil, but not as you know it.
Sitio Capoeira is a family-run farm owned by Fernandes & Jose Malta. Fernandes’ family has a long history of coffee production going back generations. Today the farm comprises over 100 hectares of coffee with a focus on high quality arabica married with state-of-the-art technology.
This particular lot started life as a happy accident. After running out of space on their drying patio, Fernandes and Jose were forced to leave some of their coffee on the truck awaiting processing. Three days later the space had cleared and they carried out a very slow and carefully monitored drying process until the optimum moisture level had been reached. They were blown away when they tasted the results! The three day slow fermentation period had imparted on the coffee an intensely fruity profile rarely seen in Brazilian coffee.
In the cup this coffee has the full, chocolatey body you expect from a natural Brazil but it is supplemented by blackcurrant and tropical fruit notes.
