The semi-washed process is fairly rare in Brazil, although more prevalent in the Chapada Diamantina region. Cherries are pulped, then fermented to break down the sugary mucilage. The cherries are dried on covered patios & mechanically dried until optimum moisture content is reached. The end result is an atypical Brazil coffee with defined acidity & fruit.
The Region of Chapada Diamantina is a protected conservation area where local knowledge leans towards different processing methods than the traditional natural & pulped natural varieties found throughout the rest of Brazil’s coffee growing regions.
