Serra do Cabral Tropical Fermentation (Brazil)
The Flanzer family have single handedly put Serra do Cabral on the map as a new and exciting speciality coffee origin. Although relatively new kids on the block, the quality of their coffee speaks for itself as proven by their copious prizes at the prestigious Cup of Excellence competition.
Ecoagricola grows only the highest grade coffee varietals and has embarked on a quality driven project for harvesting with one of the world's leading coffee researchers, Professor Broém. The brothers place ecological preservation at the heart of their business, which is certified by the Rainforest Alliance. The Reserva da Borralha, which surrounds the farm, boasts 2,000 hectares completely untouched by man and rich with biodiversity.
For this special microlot, only the ripest yellow catucai cherries were chosen to undergo an experimental tropical fermentation process. The result....an exciting coffee that truly showcases the impact fermentation and processing has on flavour profile. As Marcelo and Roberto intended, this coffee sings with floral and tropical notes.
