    • CATIRA

    • VARIETALS

      This coffee, just like music, is a composition: they blended together the varietals Catucai, Acaua, and Catigua and processed them together for a richer and more complex cup - a process that they call 'assemblage'.

       

      Harvest: Manual
      Process: Semi-Carbonic Maceration

      Drying: Patio, finished on stainless-steel drum drier

    • PROCESSING

      The semi-carbonic maceration is a fermentation technique inspired by the winemaking style of Beaujolais, where the ripe coffee cherries ferment inside an hermetical tank. The CO2 released in the fermentation expels all the oxygen from the tank, creating an anaerobic environment. The maceration is result of the bottom cherries crushing under the weight of the top cherries.
