Brazil Sitio Grota Funda Natural Process
Brazil Sitio Grota Funda… Natural Process creates a fruity, bold, complex cup profile.
On my requests list was a chocolaty coffee, on a blind cupping this was number eight on the table and the others ticked the smooth creamy box but the Grota Funda jumped out she was another natural . The berry and straw gives her a lovely start with the cacao nibs lingering beautifully to finish.

The farm, located approximately 5km from the village Carmo De Minas, was acquired by the producer Glaucio Carneiro Pinto in 1992. Once the fruit is ripe the coffee is then harvested and depulped, on the same day, then spread out in thin layers on the terraces for drying. The coffee is then constantly turned until it reaches the desirable moisture content, and then stored in wooden bins to rest.
