COUNTRY: Brazil 

REGION: Norte Pioneiro do Paraná 

CULTIVAR: Yellow Catuaí

PROCESSING: Cold Control Fermentation

This particular ‘Cold Soul’ Natural lot is a result of Luiz’s innovative approach to post-harvest processes. The process was developed as an effort to achieve a specific Natural profile, full of typical ‘Natural’ fruit flavours but with a more clean and sweet cup than a conventional Natural. The idea for the process came after a discussion with a Nicaraguan farmer who had harvested a very special lot intended for the Cup of Excellence Competition. When the farmer arrived in the mill with his carefully picked, ripe coffee, ready to be processed, he found that the mill had a power failure. With no electricity to power his pulper, what to do? He decided to soak the lot in the fermentation tanks with fresh water and pulp in the morning after the power was reconnected. Far from ruining his hard work, the lot ended up winning second place in the competition!

Learning this, Luiz was inspired. He began experimenting with his own processing. He first began ‘double fermenting’ his washed coffees, which were met with acclaim internationally. After some trials and many successes, Luiz decided – why not apply the same principle to some of the more select Natural lots?
