In the centre of an extinct volcano in Patrocinio, Brazil, The Ruvaldo Delarisse family produces this natural, or sun-dried, coffee 12600 meters above sea level.
The soil at Chapadao de Ferro is uniquely rich in iron, rendering the farm's name ("Plateau of Iron"), as well as a flavour that is similarly unique to this Cerrado, the eco-region.
The Miaki Family sun-dries the coffee fruit off on concrete patios, which helps develop both body and sweetness in this coffee.
