Brazil - Sao Silvestre 040 250g

Note: Stone Fruit, Sweet Cherry, Salted Hazelnut Chocolate

Sao Silvestre 005 is currently our easy-going mainstay but this farm produces quite the range of coffees and 040 Aerobic Natural is a great example of what they can do! It is made up of Yellow Icatu variety, chosen for its high glucose and fructose and grown at 1200 masl. It was harvested by machine on the 6th of July 2021 before being taken to the mill on the farm for processing. The cherries were sorted for density and colour to select only ripe well developed cherries. It was then fermented in open air tanks at an average temp of 25 degrees for 80 hours and then slow dried on raised beds for 25 days to encourage a  more uniform drying. More precision and care you cannot get! But, what to expect in the cup? Stone fruit acidity with notes of sweet cherry and salted hazelnut chocolate!
