Getting product details...

Hazelnuts, peanuts, caramel and chocolate.

Ismael and Eduardo Andrade have owned and worked Fazenda Sao Silvestre since 1991. Located in the north of Minas Garais in an area know as Cerrado Mineiro on the border with Bahia state.
The farm benefits from rich volcanic soil which provide an ideal substrate within which to grow coffee trees. The farm concentrates on three varietals, Yellow Icatu, Yellow Bourbon and Typica. Thje ripe cherries are processed using the pulped natural or honey method. The cherries are pulped but the sticky mucilage is left on during the drying process. Depending on weather conditions the cherries are dried either fully in the sun or partly in the sun and finished in a mechanical dryer.

The Andrade brothers are fortunate to have a fully equiped cupping lab on the farm and are certified by the Brazil SCA.
