Tasting Notes: Peanut butter, dark chocolate
This coffee comes from a single estate, Fazenda Riacho Doce (or “sweet water stream”) on the Vitoria da Conquista plateau, in the town of Barra do Choca, in the state of Bahia. Ripe cherry was harvested during the day and taken to the washing station on the farm at the end of the afternoon, where it was de-pulped and left to rest in fermentation tanks for 12–15 hours. (In Brazil, washed coffees that undergo this fermentation step are referred to as "fully washed.") After fermentation, the beans were washed and sent to slowly dry in greenhouses.
