More About Sitio Urtiga Natural Arara

On the border of Sul De Minas and the Cerrado, in the mountainous region of ILicnea, lies Sitio Urtiga — a small 5ha farm that has been in the Josias Cardoso's family since 1987. The region’s soil is known as cambisolo, where the rock is still turning to soil, which places its own unique stress on the plants and the maturation on the cherry, resulting in unique and intriguing coffees.

The coffee is harvested by hand and then separated for ripeness. Drying begins in a small mechanical drier before sun-drying 15 days on a patio. After reaching a humidity of 11.3%, it is then hulled, before being stored in warehouses for export.
