Nose: red berries, grapes, floral, vanilla.
Flavor: apple, cherries, berries, floral, rosé wine.
Varietal: in Tupi, the language of the native Brazilians, Ibairi means “small and sweet fruit”, a name that fits well this varietal: it’s a cross between Red Bourbon and Mokka. The beans are very small and round, and the mucilage is exceptionally sweet.
Process: the cherries fermented 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.
