Coffee Hunting 2016/17 – Cerrado Mineiro – Lavrinha Farmfevereiro 11, 2017
Ivone and Edmar Zuccon From Santa Clara Farmfevereiro 12, 2017
Georgia was received by the couple Edmar and Yvone Zuccon at Santa Clara Farm, in the Espírito Santo Mountains, in the municipality of Brejetuba. The Zuccon family has been a master at producing exceptional microlots of specialty coffees, with high scores. Several samples of these microlots were brought to the Luccalab, to choose our 2016-17 microlots.
The microclimate with cold nights and high altitude creates conditions for a prolonged maturation. The varieties produced at Santa Clara Farm are Catuaí and Catucaqui. Harvesting is done manually and selectively, and coffees processed as Fully Washed prevent drying in terrariums. New processes are being developed, with refermentation, or controlled fermentation
The Zuccon family has been a master at producing exceptional microlots of specialty coffees. This year Lucca has already reserved several samples to compose our microlot selection of the 2016-17 coffee crop.
