Story

Inácio first arrived in Minas Gerais in 1976 with the dream of producing great coffee via sustainable and innovative practices. After acquiring his own farm in Cerrado Mineiro in 1984, Rio Brilhante has grown to become one of the biggest farms in the region, as well as one of the largest in the country; spanning over 2000 hectares. Since Inácio planted those first trees over 30 years ago, he has continued to strive for excellence within the speciality industry, mainly via his use of rigorous quality control methods.

A wide selection of varieties common to Brazil can be found at Rio Brilhante. These include; bourbon, topazio, and catucai, amongst others. As part of their core drive to always innovate, new varieties such as Arara and Paraiso are also being introduced, such as this lot. These varieties have been chosen not only for their great cup attributes but also for their pathogen resistant characteristics that help deter diseases such as leaf rust. This, in turn, increases the productivity of the tree and also reduces the quantity of fungicide application needed. This particular lot from Rio Brilhante is 100% Paraiso. Cherries are picked and sorted, before being dried on patios until they reach below 12% moisture. Coffee cherry is poured onto the patio and left to ferment in 15cm layers for 3 days. Once complete, the fermentation period is disrupted, with the cherry spread thinly and regularly turned, insuring an even dry.
