This super tasty coffee was grown by Lillian Carrijo on her farm, Aterradinho, near the town of Ibiraci. Lillian is from a traditionalcoffee growing family. Her father was a passionate farmer and passed his knowledge on to Lillian and her brothers.
With the help of her husband, Lillian is constantly searching to improve quality and together they have focused on producing exceptional speciality coffees. As a result of their hard work and attention to detail the farm has been recognised in several regional contests is now taking part in national contests too.
This coffee is naturally processed in a traditional Brazilian manner. The ripe cherries are dried in the sun for 8 to 13 days on a cemented drying patio. The cherries must be consistantly raked to ensure even drying and prevent over-fermentation or mould formation. After drying they are rested for upwards of 1 month before hulling, grading and sorting to remove defects.
