Santa Inês is part of the Sertão Group and in addition to its 75 hectares of coffee it has 140 hectares of native forest and grazing for their Girolando cattle. Francisco Isidro Dias Pereira has five cultivars of coffee planted on the farm: Yellow Bourbon, Red Bourbon, Yellow Catuaí, Acaiá and Mundo Novo. We chose the Yellow Bourbon for its sweetness and caramel flavours. This shipment has been processed using the Pulped Natural Process, during which the skin and fruit of the cherry are removed, and the sticky parchment-covered beans are left to dry naturally. The final stage is the removal of the dried parchment before the coffee is graded, bagged and shipped to the UK. Recently, the drying equipment has been upgraded and improvements made to the patios. Drying patios in this area of Brasil are typically laid with concrete and they take a bit of a battering over the harvest and rainy seasons. Like potholes in our roads there are only so many patches that can be made before a full resurface is needed. Please see carmocoffees.com.br for more information about the farm and photos of the processing.
