Take a trip to the Serra da Mantiqueira in the Cerrado region of Carmo de Minas with this Yellow Bourbon varietal.
The JR farm, owned by the Junquiera/Reis family, located between 1050m and 1360m elevation, is perfectly situated to take advantage of the summer rains and the cool winter nights that coffee cherries thrive upon.
Prepared as a pulped natural, the fleshy mucilage remains on the coffee through drying to tone down the acidity and increase the body.
The JR brothers Jose and Pedro have won numerous awards from the Brazilian Specialty Coffee Association for their pulped naturals. We feel fortunate to have been able to pick up a few bags from the current crop as most are destined for Japan, Taiwan and Scandinavia. Enjoy!
