Inacio 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.
As part of their core drive to always innovate at Rio Brilhante, this particular lot from Rio Brilhante is 100% Aramosa; which is an interesting hybrid of Arabica and the lesser-known Racemosa species.
Aramosa is well known for its great cup quality, as well as being naturally low in caffeine content. This is especially great for people who enjoy a cup of coffee in the evening without having to worry about keeping them up!
The double fermentation of this coffee yields very interesting tasting notes of grape jelly, sweet cranberries and hints of floral notes.
As it cools, it transits into a smooth mouthfeel-body and its gentle sweetness will coat your tongue, leaving you wanting for more.
