Varietal: Arara is a natural hybrid between varietals Obata and Yellow Catuai. It’s a tall and vigorous plant that gives yellow cherries and is also resistant to some diseases, like the leaf rust.
Process: The Arara cherries ferment inside a tank equipped with a valve system that prevents any gas from entering the tank. As the cherries ferment, they release CO2 and, because carbon dioxide is denser than oxygen, it pushes the lighter gas out through the valve. After a few hours, the tank environment becomes completely anaerobic, allowing the perfect conditions for microorganisms to perform enzymatic reactions inside of the beans.
