About The Coffee
Luis averages production under 100 bags each year and of this 50% has the potential for specialty. These numbers (tiny production in Brazilian terms ) have traditionally made it difficult for Luis to find a direct market. 2018 was the 1st time Luis' coffee had been sold as a separated lot.
This is a 20 bag 100% obata lot and represents the best coffee produced by the farm. Harvest time for the Divinolandia region is generally June, July, and early August but it does shift a bit year to year depending on the rainfall. Natural coffees as opposed to the more traditional Pulped Natural are the specialty of this region. The terrain can be a bit challenging so there’s no mechanized picking instead areas of the farm are picked clean by hand, then pruned as the unripe cherries are separated and the rest are patio dried in the sun.
