Brazil Fazenda Cachoeria


A unique naturally fermented Brazil... Fudge, chocolate and almond with a pineapple aftertaste.    

Five of the Barbosa family visited the Dusty Ape roastery, having a direct relationship with coffee producers really gives that family vibe. So much pride, joy and love oozes from this fourth generation producer.

This hand picked Yellow Catuai scores SCA 87 which isn’t unusual from the Danilo Barbosa family. There is and always has been a big focus on the environment and sustainability, the family are currently looking to  produce a 100% sustainable coffee alongside their 186 hectares of nature reserve! 

From the Minas Gerais region in the southeast of Brazil which has some of the highest mountain in the country. This coffee is grown at an altitude of 1100m  

The Barbosa family have been producing coffee for four generations, now across two farms DBarbosa and Cachoeira. Cachoeira is Portuagues for ‘waterfall’ and located along the Paraguaçu River.

When the cherries reach full maturity they are hand picked, placed into bags and left to rest and ferment in their own juice under the shade of the trees for two days. After this, with their skin still on, they are taken to dry and rest for a further twenty days, ‘African style’. During the drying process the cherries are placed on suspended, raised beds, which allows air to flow between the beans and the drying is more uniform. The beans are shuffled and turned every one to two hours depending on the temperature that day.
