Country: Brazil Coffee region: Ibiraci Elevation: 1,240m above sea level Variety: Red Catuai 99 Processing: 36 Hours Bag Fermentation Farmer: Jean Vilhena
Located in the Alta Mogiana region, the farm is within 3 different municipalities: Ibiraci, Cassia and Capetinga. At Ibiraci, Jean focuses 100% on high grade specialty coffee, having separated driers for micro-lots only and 6000 m2 of raised beds.
For this lot, Jean kept the coffee fermenting for 36 hours in bags, a method to exclude oxygen and helps the fermentation process. Under this controlled environment, the yeast fermentation adds in complex layers and slight booziness flavours to the coffee.
