For the 2-2021 release, we’re roasting a dry processed coffee from the Fazenda Serrinha in Brazil. This offering has a rustic sweetness, and hints of Brazil nut, peanut, and dried prune.
“Serrinha” is the name of one of two farms operated by the family of Jose Maria de Oliveira. The farm is located in the growing-region of Campos Altos, the town itself sitting at 1000 meters, much higher than what is average altitude from much of the Cerrado region. This particular farm tops out around 1200 meters above sea level, and is planted in several different varietals, this being a Yellow Bourbon separation. Much of the coffee is still manually picked, as part of the farm is situated on a slope, a grade that does not allow for mechanical harvesting. This particular coffee is dry processed, meaning the whole cherry is picked from the tree and then laid out to dry for roughly 30 days, after which the dried cherry and parchment layer are mechanically removed. This type of processing tends to impart some fruited flavor on the seed, as well as mute acidity, and produce a big body flavor.
We have a very limited amount available for this release.
