Varietal: Acaia is a selection of Mundo Novo varietal. In Tupi, the language of the native Brazilians, Acaia means “fruit with large seeds”, which is a characteristic of this genetic. It’s believed that the large seeds may be an inheritance from Sumatra as it was one of the varietals that created Mundo Novo in the first place.
Process: We made this coffee fermenting the ripe Acaia cherries inside an open tank. We don’t use water, yeast, or any other additives – it’s an open, natural fermentation.
