Varietal: Acaua is a crossing between the varietals Mundo Novo and Sarchimor. Besides being a vigorous and productive tree, this varietal usually makes coffees with distinctive yellow fruit tastes. It’s a long road to get here, though – this is Acaua’s sixth generation in Daterra (and each generation takes almost three years to produce).
Process: We harvested the ripe Acaua cherries and placed them on a fermentation tank without water, yeast, or any other additives – it’s an open, natural fermentation
Screen size: 16/18
Harvesting: Selective Mechanical
