Nose: tropical fruits, floral, strawberry
Flavors: raspberries, cherry liqueur, red berries, rum. Phosphoric acidity.
Varietal: Catucai is a cross between varietals Icatu and Catuai that occurred naturally, resulting in well-producing and vigorous plants with resistance against the leaf rust. In fact, there are many different lineages of Catucai today: some of them give red cherries while others give yellow fruits.
Process: We made this coffee fermenting the ripe Catucai cherries inside an open tank. We don’t use water, yeast, or any other additives – it’s an open, natural fermentation.
