About The Farm:
Sitio Capoeira is a family-run farm owned by Fernandes & Jose Malta. Fernandes’ family have a long history in coffee production going back generations on high quality.
The farm is based in Jeriquara town, city founded in 1883 and which name means “Turtle refugee” in Brazilian Indian language. Coffee production is the most important agricultural industry within this municipality and the wider region of Alta Mogiana.
Alta Mogiana traditionally produces specialty coffees due to a combination of its favourable climate, high altitude and farmer expertise. And Sitio Capoeira it is not an exception.
Why this coffee it is so unusual:
Fully sun-dried coffee is a rare find in Brazil and this coffee started life as a happy little accident.
After running out of space on their drying patio, farmers were forced to leave some of their coffee on the truck awaiting processing. Three days later when the space had cleared they carried out a very slow and carefully monitored drying process until the optimum moisture level had been reached. Upon tasting the new coffee for the first time they were blown away. This three day slow fermentation period had allowed the coffee to obtain an intense fruity profile rarely seen in Brazilian coffee.
