This coffee was produced by Jose Santana on his small 4-hectare farm located at 1,350m above sea level in the micro- region of Gerais, near in Piatã, a privileged coffee growing region in Bahia’s Chapada Diamantina region. Chapada Diamantina translates to ”Diamond Plateau” in Portuguese, and for 100 years this area was mined for the gemstones embedded in its cliffs. Today the region is famous for its specialty coffee since the 2009 Cup of Excellence, where five of the top 10 spots came from Piatã. The region’s dominance in the awards has continued every year since and incredibly, in the 2016 Cup of Excellence Pulped Natural competition, an astounding 19 of the 24 winning lots came from Piatã! Piata coffees are now considered some of the best in Brazil. These coffees are extremely limited, and production is relatively small, given the small scale of the farms in this part of Brazil. This coffee was produced using the pulped natural processing method. Coffee was hand pulped and dried for 10-20 days on patios in the sun and under the shade of a greenhouse with the mucilage still attached – spread into thin layers and raked several times a day. Once dried and rested, the coffee was t at Fazenda Progresso, in Mucugê.
