  • Country: Brazil
  • Region: High Cerrado, Serra do Salitre.
  • Farm: Fazenda São Silvestre.
  • Owner: Ismael & Eduardo Andrade.
  • Processing: Pulped Natural.
  • Altitude: 1250 metres above sea level.
  • Varietal: 100% Icatú.

The farm’s volcanic soils provide ideal conditions for growing the farm’s main varieties – Yellow Icatú, Yellow Bourbon and Típica. The beans are harvested when ripe and prepared using the pulped natural process: the cherries are pulped, and the mucilage is left on the beans while they are dried. Depending on climatic conditions, the coffee is either totally sun-dried or completed in two stages where the beans are initially sun dried, bringing the moisture content down to approximately 20%, and then finished in mechanical dryers, bringing the moisture content of the beans to a maximum of 12%. 

After drying the coffee is stored in silos, still protected by the parchment or by the husk. After this period of rest, the coffee is milled and sorted prior to export.
