Daterra is a remarkable farm located in Cerrado, Brazil. Lauded as the most sustainable farm in Brazil and earning the reputable B-Corp certification, this agriculture is on a dramatically different scale than the vast majority of coffee farmers that SSG and Catur have worked together with.
Aramosa, a rare variety from Daterra, is a crossbreed between Coffeea Arabica and Coffeea Racemosa, an heirloom species. This crossbreed results in Aramosa having a lower caffeine content than the usual Arabica. SSG and Catur Coffee Company worked together with Daterra to process this Aramosa together, using the inoculants from Indonesia.
After picking the ripest cherries, the coffee then moved into an anaerobic sealed fermentation tank, sprayed with the inoculants, and fermented under controlled parameters until it reached 3.8 pH. This lot has two taste profiles mixed together; ‘Senja’, and ‘Kamala’. Aramosa that has gone through the ‘Kamala’ taste profile will be dried with cherries still intact, while ‘Senja’ will be pulped, washed, but still leaving the mucilage. They will be dried separately on raised beds until they reach 10-120/o moisture content. Lastly, they will be put back together in a hermetically sealed pack to homogenize the two processes.
This Aramosa has a unique candy-like experience of munching bubble gum along with that complex sweet and sour that reminds us of Blueberry Jam and Finish of an Authentic Roasted Green Tea.
