Additional Information

Back in July Ana from Mio Fazenda in Brazil visited our roastery and brought some coffee with her, We instantly knew we needed to work with her. Ana’s parents own and operate Mio Fazenda so she is a beacon of knowledge when it comes to all things coffee. This coffee stood out for us as it utilises waste cherries that are not usable after harvest.

Typically during harvest in Brazil, Machine pickers are used which means all cherries get picked, good and bad. This meant there was a lot of waste, so working with the Federal institute of Espírito Santo they developed this method.

The Federal Institute of Espírito Santo developed this method through scientific studies. In it, unripe cherries undergo an enzymatic fermentation process. When left in water, microorgan- isms from within the coffee act by breaking molecules such as chlorogenic acids – compounds that can cause high astringency in the cup. The result is a smoother, sweeter cup, saving a product that would be sold cheaply and transforming it into a complex and unique specialty coffee
