-Multi-layer processing: Tree dried and ripe cherries harvested together then separated by density after cleaning. Patio sun and mechanically dried. Minimum 30 day wood box rest before hulling. Second screen, color, and density sort before sealing for export.
-Contrasting regions: Sul de Minas; generational traditions on colonial farms, steep slopes, verdant valley landscapes.
-Cerrado; newest growing region with warm temperatures, sunlight, and dry winters. Rose to prominence after frost and nematode damage forced producers into new areas. Soil development, plant adaptation required. -Groundswell’s first natural espresso. Surprisingly clean despite lower elevation.
