The name 'Seletivo Natural' ( Seletivo is Portuguese for Selective) refers to both the method used to harvest the coffee as well as the method used to process it. This Brazilian Bourbon varietal was selectviely handpicked from the vine with precision to pick the very best and most ripe cherries.

After being harvested, the coffee is processed with a Natural method, wherein the cherries are put into large tanks of water for density sorting after harvest. Unripe and undeveloped coffees will float to the top, signifying lower quality coffee. Water is drained and coffee goes to the patio for drying with the fruit still intact. The fruit normally remains drying on the patios for over a week, and the coffee cherries are mixed manually by paddles to promote even drying and prevent rotting or over-fermentation. Once the coffee is dried to a specific moisture content (10-12%) it goes to a mill to be hulled and ready for mechanical sorting to further remove less dense beans, plant matter, shells, etc before entering the bagging and export phase.
