This SHG Red Burbon / Catuaí coffee plantation was certified by international UTZ monitors in Dec 2012 as having been grown without the use of potentially harmful chemicals and possessing social responsibility.
Other than the word organic on the label, however, this coffee is graded just like other specialty origin coffee.
Plants are carefully germinated from the best organic non-pesticide production.
They are hand picked and transported in organic bags to the processing plant.
They are then machine washed and laid to dry naturally in the sun. Following a tradition centuries in the making.
Grading & Sorting:
Before export, the coffee beans are precisely sorted by size and weight.
They are closely evaluated for color, flaws, or other imperfections.
They are sorted pneumatically through the use of air jets to separate beans based on density and weight. Through this process, only exceptional beans remain.
