Another outstanding microlot from one of Brazil’s most specialty focused cooperatives, Coopfam. Our second lot from Dr. Flávio Borém's quality improvement project that has led to significant increases in quality
This is our 3rd year purchasing from the cooperative and we are continually impressed by the quality.
The lot has come from a quality improvement project funded by Coopfam to train members on specialty coffee post-processing techniques. They have implemented the findings of Brazil’s famous coffee quality scientist – Dr. Flávio Borém and the new processing techniques.
This particular lot has been produced by Sinval Silvia, he has been nurturing his farm for over 40 years now and with help of his son Heverton William (who’s microlot we purchased last year) and son-in-law Lucas he has implemented new processing techniques that have revealed some distinctive flavours in the cup.
After hand-picking the cherries, they are cleaned. Once clean, the cherries are placed into static dryers.
For the first couple of hours the dryers use airflow and ambient temperature air to start the natural fermentation process. After this, the temperature of the dryer is slowly increased to achieve slow and uniform drying.
