Region: Cerrado, Brazil
Harvest: July 2020

Process: Tree Dried natural
Fermentation: Tree dried 'Cerredo' natural this process means that cherries were left on the trees for a longer time, allowing them to go through the full maturation process and dry while still attached to the branch. This processing technique is only possible if the weather is very dry and stable during harvest - in fact, in many regions, allowing coffee to dry on tree could be a big problem: the excess moisture can develop fungus and other microorganisms. Because of Cerrado’s unique traits, this process is possible - which is great, because it brings very positive attributes to the cup: tree-dried naturals usually show heavy body and extra-intense sweetness.
Drying: patio and drum dried
This coffee is very sweet and chocolatey in espresso and nutty on pour over.
