In search of enhancing sweetness and acidity, we have applied a roast that highlights these unique aromas and flavors of pineapple, yellow fruits and a touch of mint. It is a perfect coffee for filtered methods.

After the harvest, the whole fruits are washed in a process where the defective fruits are removed and the ripe and healthy ones are preserved. These fruits are transferred to a closed carboy, between 27 and 29 degrees of temperature, and are removed 7 days later, when they are at a temperature of around 19 degrees. No yeast or microorganisms are added to the fermentation. The fruits are then dried in a covered patio for 15 days.

Yellow Caparaó is an autochthonous variety from the Pedra Menina/Espera Feliz area, right where the Forquilha do Rio site is located. It is a low plant, with bronzed leaves, great vigor and suitable for higher altitudes.
