It's all in the Brewing
São Francisco de Assis is located within the Campo das Vertentes, in the southeast of the state of Minas Gerais. This newly cultivated coffee farm benefits from Brazilian soil, mild temperatures, and a good altitude. The farm is managed by André and his wife Natalia, together they are responsible for their numerous quality projects. They have recently undertaken their first harvest that was 100% handpicked. The farm aims to make the best coffee cherries that they can; after that careful management of the post-harvest process is crucial to preserving the integrity of the quality. Andre and Natalia have recently focused on anaerobic processing; by installing conditioning bins and focusing on an array of differing drying and fermentation techniques the farm is able to create a unique coffee that sets São Francisco de Assis apart from its peers.
Peaberries are estimated to make up to around 5–10% of a harvest. They occur as a result of a natural mutation, or defect, inside a coffee cherry, where one ovule fails to pollinate. This results in extra space for the single developing seed. Within this space, a larger and rounder seed grows inside. This is a peaberry. As the single bean of a peaberry does not need to share nutrients between two separated beans, it has a much richer flavour. This hand picked coffee is vibrant and fruity with good acidity and a very smooth, rich finish.
