So named because the ripe coffee cherries are yellow. The Andrade family have been cultivating this varietal in the high, green Cerrado Mineiro in the north of Minas Gerais state.
With an elevation of about 1,100 meters above sea level and volcanic soil for the coffee plants to grow in, as well as a balance of wet and dry seasons, the environmental conditions are ideal for coffee in general, and particularly for the Yellow Catuaí varietal.
Fazenda Capim Branco has been in the Andrade family since 1901. Ismael and Eduardo Andrade have earned the recognition of coffee lovers at home and abroad. The Brazil Specialty Coffee Association rates their coffee as some of the best the country has to offer.
Keeping it natural…
Ismael and Eduardo’s attentive husbandry produces uniform blossoming and maturation, which allows them to process the coffee using the natural method. Ripe cherries dry on site on a patio and once the desired humidity level is reached the cherries are then dry milled to remove the pulp and parchment. This method produces fruity flavours as the entirety of coffee pulp dries on the beans within.
