Nose: floral, grape candy, strawberries.
Flavor: grapes, jasmine, blackberries, raspberries, stone fruits, pinot noir.
Varietal: Aramosa is a pre-cultivar: that means this genetics is still under study. We have been researching Aramosa for many years with IAC, the Agronomic Institute of Campinas – today, we even have our own exclusive Aramosa selections! The Aramosa is a cross between Coffea Arabica and Coffea Racemosa. This crossbreeding was performed to inherit Racemosa’s low caffeine and drought resistance with Arabica’s flavor. Because the plant produces less caffeine, the beans always taste very sweet, floral, and without any bitterness.
Process: For this lot, we made a honey process with a twist: first, we carefully removed only the cherry’s skin – the goal was to retain all of mucilage. After that, we fermented the pulped beans and their mucilage in an anaerobic environment.
