From the Carmo de Minas municipality in the state of
Minas Gerais. This microlot coffee is
comprised of the Acaia cultivar from farms
in Heliodora, which is a very small region
in southeast Minas Gerais.
the coffee cherries goe through what is
known locally as the "Gato Arisco
process".. The Gato Arisco process
is a honey process in which the outer
pulp-like portion of the cherry is left
intact for a specific amount of time of
the drying portion of the process in order
to highlight the exotic flavors and sweetness
in the beans.
In the cup, this
processing method expresses intense brightness
and sweetness unique to the Acaia coffee
bean varietal leaving exotic red fruits,
citrus, and stonefruit flavors without
being overly powerful. Great for all types
of brewing. Brazil Heliodora also makes
for a unique single origin espresso.
