About the process

All the fruit that are part of this coffee are dried in static boxes. These are 1 m deep boxes with capacity for 15000 litre volume of cherry which equates to 25-30 bags of green coffee. The boxes have a vented grill at the bottom to allow for air to be circulated from below up through the drying coffee. There are two thermometers at different depths to ensure a safe temperature always below 40c. They are referred to as static due to the coffee remaining still in the boxes and not being turned or rotated during drying. After it is dried the coffee is then left to rest for approximately 1- 2 weeks before being milled. This method has allowed the production of more fruity and prominent profiles from the usual profile we associate with Brazil natural coffee.

Choc Nuts

Before our Decio was finished we had to begin the hunt for a new accessible Brazil. This time around it was quite a challenge, all of the seemed to have just a bit too much acidity in there for what we were looking for. We needed more choc & nuts and less blueberry acidity. After stripping all our green suppliers of their samples we were out of choices. Then boom! Falcon Coffees came to the rescue with some new lots. The choice was easy and the rest is history. Try this simple but delicious coffee today.
