Region: Caparaó - Minas Gerais
Altitude: 800-1500 m
Variety: Catucaí & Catuaí
Process: So-called ’natural’. Right after harvest, the cherries are dried on with the cherry intact with the soft highland breeze under the Brazilian sun.
Region: Agua de Nieves, Monobamba - Peru
Altitude: 1600-2100 m
Process: The coffee cherries are peeled of pulp and left to rest in their sugar mucilage for 24-36 h. During the rest, the sugar is dissolved during a fermentation process. Kind of like in a regular sourdough fermentation. After that, the berries are washed in fresh spring water before they are dried slowly.
Use the bag for something new, like planting plants in it or new storage for your pens.
Put the bag in an active compost. It will become soil (the time it takes depends on the season, liveliness, and temperature of the compost)
Recycle as paper.
*It's impossible to translate the word 'Lagom'. But if we were to try, we would say, not too much, not too little. Perhaps 'just right' would be the best approximation, if you could imagine for a moment someone saying 'just right' in a completely neutral voice, free of either sadness or excitement. Said with lagom much enthusiasm?
