Sao Silvestre farm in the Serra do Salitre region of Brazil
Yellow Icatu & Catuai
1100 - 1200 masl
Notes of Hazelnut, Strawberry & Overripe Grape
This is Bailies third season receiving the Sao Silvestre crop, they feel very fortunate to have built such strong relations with Ismael & Eduardo and the working relationship continues to see progress year on year.
The cherries are collected with the help of mechanical harvesters and brought to the farm. They are carefully selected and graded, all impurities are removed and the cherries are pulped. Sticky parchment beans with the mucilage still attached are then spread out onto raised beds where they are slowly dried over the course of 2 weeks. During this time they are turned multiple times a day and further manual selection is taken place. When the beans are dried the parchment is removed at the on-farm dry mill.
