Coffee details


Cherries were harvested at the maturation peak and it was immediately moved to the patio over a white cloth in order to avoid absorbing too much heat. The cherries dried very slowly over 20 days, leaving the beans more time in contact with the mucilage. Very thins layers were used to prevent undisered fermentation and raking only started at the "raisin" stage to avoid depulping or damaging the cherries. The process was finished in a vertical drier, using mild temperatures trying to replicate the sunlight conditions.

Producer Story:

Despite being a fourth-generation coffee grower, Alexandre Cambraia had a rough start when he succeeded his father in a farm that was on the brink of bankruptcy. The challenges were many, especially for someone who had grown up and studied in a bug city. Through great determination, Alexandre was able to get more capital to invest in new crops, while learning skills to take care of the coffee plants and manage a farm. Currently, Fazenda Mundo Novo continues as the family's legacy.
