Process: Pulped Natural

Fazenda Ouro Verde is nestled in the scenic Serra da Mantiqueira de Minas in Santa Rita do Sapucaí with 120 hectares of land, including 70 ha dedicated to coffee cultivation and 50 ha of pristine native forest. Their commitment to sustainability, guided by an experienced agronomist, led to a crop transformation. Since 2011, they have embraced more productive varieties, pest-resistant plants, and superior coffee quality. 

Arara is a leaf rust and disease resistant variety that was developed by Fundação Procafé in Brazil. The variety was released in 2012 after 15 years of research but was actually discovered as a naturally occurring cross. It is a hybrid of Yellow Catuai and Obatã, from which it gets its disease resistance. Arara has become a very popular variety in Brazil due to its yellow cherries, compact size, high yields, and very good cup quality.

This Arara has such a depth of sweetness it's so easy to dial in across the brewing spectrum.
