Ipanema’s infrastructure, located at two processing centres in Fazenda Capoeirinha and Fazenda Conquista, is an extraordinarily well-run and efficient farm using the latest agronomic technology. The coffees are meticulously cupped by their specialist team and only the best beans are chosen. This is a pulped natural coffee, which is otherwise known as Semi Washed, where the outer skin from the cherry is removed but the fruit (or mucilage) is still kept on and the coffee is stored, then it is washed and dried later.
We've been getting coffee from this wonderful estate for yonks now and will continue to. Over the years we've had the Bourbon, Gourmet, Yellow Bourbon, Icatu & Ouro Preto and we've loved them all.
The Gourmet Pulped Natural Ipanema has a sweet cup with a mild acidity. It has a good body and a halzelnut notes with a creamy mouthfeel and finish. There are no harsh notes to the cup, definitely a coffee for those that prefer a milder, smooth cup.
